Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over ten thought-provoking weekly sessions, with a day or weekend away.
The Alpha course is open to everyone who would like to attend.
Guests attend for a wide variety of reasons. Some have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.
Each session begins with a meal or refreshments - a chance to get to know others in the small group. There is then a short talk, which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion in the small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion, ask questions and discuss with the rest of the group.
The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.
If you would like to take part in the next alpha course at St Edmund’s Taverham, please contact Paul Seabrook, the Rector.
