Would you like to get together for food, a talk and good conversation? You may be interested in starting the next Alpha course which begins at St John’s & King’s Park Church with our guest supper on Thursday 21st September.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome.
First up there’s Food
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Our sessions start with food because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.
Then a Talk
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and will be delivered weekly from 28th September through to 7th December (except October school holidays), they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Followed by Discussion
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s no opinion you can’t express. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
We would love you to join our next Alpha and you can register your interest by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop along to our guest supper where you can join us for food and find out more:
