Alpha

We'd love you to join us for our next Alpha Course, which we'll be running in January 2019. (If that's too far away and you'd like to join a different course sooner, click here for info on the Christianity Explored Course that we're running in September 2018). Alpha offers a wonderful opportunity, following a shared meal, for you to ask the big questions (however awkward or daft you think they might be) in a relaxed, informal setting that makes no demands on the individual.

What is Alpha?

Everyone has questions about what life is all about. We believe that everyone should have a chance to share those questions, explore the Christian faith and give their point of view. 

Alpha is a place where you can ask those questions.  We meet together for a delicious meal and listen to a talk that is designed to kick-start a conversation about what life is all about. We give you a chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic in small groups. There's no obligation to say anything and no question is too big or small to be raised. It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Here's what previous participants have said about Alpha at St Mary's:

“A really good opportunity to talk and think in a busy life - with delicious food too”

“My faith hasn’t changed during Alpha, but I do feel that it has been strengthened”

“I feel more at peace”

“It’s great to hear other people’s opinions”

“I feel like I have made friends - like a new family"

When is it happening?

The next course will begin in January 2019 and run for 8 weeks.  Please e-mail alpha@stmaryscnorton.com to register or call 01608 646202

The course is free for everyone who wants to attend although some choose to make a donation to help cover running costs.
