Alpha in Bishopstoke

The Alpha Course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith.


It’s relaxed, low-key, friendly and fun.


There is a meal together at the beginning of the first few sessions which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other.
Listen, learn, discuss and discover.  Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.


What's Involved?
Alpha consists of a series of talks on the following subjects:

 

  • Who is Jesus?

  • Why did Jesus die?

  • How can we have faith?

  • Why and how do I pray?

  • Why and how should I read the Bible?

  • How does God guide us?

  • Who is the Holy Spirit?

  • What does the Holy Spirit do?

  • How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?

  • How can I resist evil?

  • Why and how should I tell others?

  • Does God heal today?

  • What about the Church?

  • How can I make the most of the rest of my life?


After each talk we divide into small groups for a time of discussion.
