Alpha

What is it?

The internationally-acclaimed Alpha course is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life. It's a chance to explore what Christians believe in a relaxed, informal, friendly and non-threatening way.

How long does it run for?

We will be meeting on Friday evenings from 29th September 2017 to the 8th December, 7:00-9:30 pm. There is also one Saturday planned for 11th November. The venue is Greenhills Common Room, Greenhills, Harlow, CM20 3SZ.

Feel free to pop along for just the first one or two to try it out if you wish. We won't hassle you if you decide it's not your thing. There is also the option of going on a day or weekend to find out about the Holy Spirit.

What happens?

In the evening course, things kick off at 7pm with a cooked meal, where the conversation revolves around many things, but not Christianity! Between 7:45pm and 8:30pm we watch a DVD - a different one each week, on topics such as "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?" and "Does God heal today?" We then break for coffee, and discuss what was said in the DVD. No question is too stupid to ask - and it's OK to disagree with what was said! The evening finishes at 9:30 pm prompt, but feel free to linger over a coffee!

How much does it cost?

There is no set charge, although you may wish to make a contribution towards the food. There may be a charge for the Holy Spirit event, but please ask if this might be a problem for you.

Sounds great - how can I find out more?
