WHAT IS ALPHA?
The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It’s relaxed, low key, friendly and fun. It’s a place where people can come and ask questions, delve into issues and look for answers together. We run the Alpha course in an open and inclusive way in line with our vision statement (see our website www.stmarysbattersea.org.uk).
WHO IS ALPHA FOR?
Everyone, especially those wanting to investigate Christianity; New Christians; newcomers to the church; those who want to brush up on the basics; the curious; and adults or older teens who may want to be baptised or confirmed.
10 weekly evening sessions. We start with supper; then a series of talks looking at topics such as Who is Jesus? & Why and how do I pray?; followed by small groups for a time of discussion. One Saturday when we focus on the Holy Spirit. A Celebration Supper at the end when participants can bring guests and we hear feedback about the course.
WHAT WILL IT COST?
There is no charge.
But we do ask all those who have previously done an Alpha Course to come back and support the participants of the current course by helping with and joining in the supper. This involves taking a turn in welcoming, setting up, preparing and serving the food, and clearing up.
