Making Space For all

Alpha Course Interactive sessions to allow exploration of the Christian Faith.

Contact: Chris Gardner
Times vary with each course
Locations vary with each course

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that allow people to freely explore the basics of the Christian Faith.

Guests are invited to freely explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting which often includes a free meal and a talk on subjects as diverse as “Who is Jesus?”, “How Can I Have Faith?” and “How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?”

After the talk, we break into small groups to discuss the content of the talk and share our opinions.
