The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, informal setting. Over ten weekly sessions, we explore key themes of Christian faith, such as who is Jesus? why did he die? and God in Person: The Holy Spirit.
We also explore those dimensions of Christian faith that connect directly with our personal experiences of life, such as suffering, money and posessions, sin, temptation and addictions.
St John's hosts the Alpha Course from time-to-time and the most recent course concluded at Easter 2017. This is what one person said: “... a huge thank you for leading the course in such an inspirational way. I learnt so much more about my own journey with God and do genuinely feel that the “emptiness” I had been experiencing has indeed been filled with God’s love. How wonderful! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone and sharing experiences...”
It is hoped to run another course later this year so if you would like to meet new people, enjoy a light evening meal, share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life then please let the office know.
