ALPHA COURSE

playhere


It was in the mid-nineties that we first hosted an Alpha Course here in Mickleham, and for 2020 we would like to offer another opportunity for people to join these meetings, which have been used greatly by God all over the world for decades! Literally millions of people have tried Alpha and it has been translated into 112 different languages. 


Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith and provides opportunity for anyone to 
have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view, whatever their background or context. The evening sessions will follow a similar format starting with a meal at 7pm, followed by a short DVD presentation exploring a different aspect people may have about the Christian faith and then a time for discussion, before finishing at 9pm. The series includes interviews with public figures such as world renowned scientist Francis Collins of the Human Genome Project and adventurer and author Bear Grylls.


Thanks to the hospitality of Liz and John Absalom our meetings will be held in Chapel Farm Barn in Westhumble:
