Alpha is a course for anyone interested in finding out more about the Christian faith or just exploring the meaning of life. Courses take place over ten weeks, with each evening consisting of supper, a short talk and then free discussion in a friendly small group setting. No question is too simple or too controversial!
Alpha courses are running up and down the country and in fact all around the world, so for more details of the course itself or find a course closer to where you live, you can either visit the national website or now you can also visit the local website, at www.abingdonalpha.org.
We launched a new season of Alpha in 2013 with an evening at Spice Valley Restaurant behind Coxeter House on 16th January. On this first evening Tim Saiet - who has been a marine, a ski instructor, a professional magician, a life coach and now a priest - talked about getting to the heart of what life is really about and encouraged us to explore it through Alpha.
We are planning to start an Alpha course on Monday 4th March at 7.30pm - venue to be confirmed. Why not join us that night and see if it is for you?
For more information or to register your interest, please contact Ed and Kate Evans.
In the past, we have run seperate Youth Alpha courses for those ages 11-18, together with other churches. Unfortunately, we have no immediate plans for another such course but we could start one if there was sufficient interest so do let us know if you'd like to be kkept in touch with what's happening.
