Alpha course

Alpha at Boulton Lane

Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over eleven sessions. It is low key, friendly and fun. It is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.

Everyone is welcome on an Alpha course. Some want to investigate whether God exists and if there is any point to life and what happens after death. Others may have attended church on and off over their lives but feel they never really have understood the basics of the Christian faith.

Each evening begins with the group sharing some food followed by the topic for the evening which will be presented by Mike. Afterwards it’s conversation time asking questions and discussing the evening’s topic. Each evening lasts  up to 2 hours.

A new course is being planned – Please contact Mike on 01283 741567 to book your place.
