At EMC we are running an evening Alpha course beginning with a launch meeting on Thursday 17th January 2019 and running for the next ten weeks on Thursday evenings (with a break on Thursday 21st February).
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith in an informal, fun and friendly environment. There is no pressure, no direct follow up and no charge. It looks at topics including, “Is there more to life than this?”, 'Who is Jesus?' and 'Why and how do I pray?'. There is a meal together at the beginning of each session which gives an opportunity to get to know each other. The material is presented in the Alpha Film Series.
The Alpha series is a global, updated and engaging resource designed to take people on a journey to explore the basics of the Christian faith. It has been re-packaged for today’s audience. The series is emotive and epic in scale and scope. Episodes feature inspiring stories, interviews from around the world, visual illustrations and motion graphics. After each film presentation, those taking part divide into small groups for a time of discussion. The aim is to listen, learn, discuss and discover. There is opportunity to ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
Alpha is for everyone. There is no assumption of background, knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome. So, this could be a refresher course for anyone in the church and an opportunity to invite friends and family into a relaxed environment to learn about Christian faith.
Alpha courses are currently being run in churches, homes, workplaces, prisons, universities and a wide variety of other locations. The course is being run around the world by all major Christian denominations. So, it is tried and trusted and has proved to be a great way to learn about Christian faith.
