The Alpha Course is a series of structured sessions designed to help you explore the meaning of Christianity and to discover answers to the big questions, such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
At St Mary’s these courses are usually held over 12 weeks in someone’s home within the parish. After sharing a delicious homemade meal, supplied by members of our congregation, there is a talk, usually accompanied with a video. Finally there is plenty of time to discuss what you have seen and heard, and to ask questions.
Many of our congregation have joined us after attending an Alpha course and several have forged friendships which have lasted for years as well as going on to cook for, assist and even lead future Alpha groups themselves.
