Our next AlPHA course will run on Monday evenings and begins on 30th Septmeber 2013.
You are also very welcome to come along to our ALPHA launch evening meal which is being hosted by a number of churches from Bromley Common, and includes live music and testimony from Philippa Hanna (http://philippahanna.com). 7pm Sunday 22nd Septmber at Bishop Justus Church of England School, Magpie Hall Lane, Bromley.
We have also found that the majority of people wish to carry on meeting up having completed the Alpha course - so we are also currently runnning an 'After-Alpha; Challenging Lifestyle' course, meeting every second Wednesday of the month.
Click here to enquire about, or reserve yourself a place on either of the courses.
Although the message remains the same on each Alpha Course - the courses themselves are so different and varied. This is because the people on the course are always so different, each is an individual with their own thoughts and opinions. What makes Alpha so special is that you really do matter. What you feel, think and maybe sometimes express is of the utmost importance. The first week or two like anything new can be a time of settling in, but over the meal and in the discussion groups (after watching the Alpha DVD) you soon realise that you are amongst people with similar thoughts and questions and longings. As friendships develop so the sense of belonging and being part of the group increases and as a consequence you can feel more relaxed in a safe environment to ask those questions you may have or share your thoughts.
Alpha is a very clear Christian course centred around the Bible and the teachings of Jesus. Each week we look at one of the following subjects -
- Christianity: Boring, Untrue and Irrelevant?
- Who Is Jesus?
- Why Did Jesus Die?
- How Can I Be Sure of My Faith?
- Why and How Should I Read the Bible?
- Why and How Do I Pray?
- How Does God Guide Us?
- Who Is the Holy Spirit?
- What Does the Holy Spirit Do?
- How Can I Be Filled With the Spirit?
- How Can I Resist Evil?
- Why and How Should We Tell Others?
- Does God Heal Today?
- What About the Church?
- How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life
We also run a Youth ALPHA course where the youngsters join us and communicate what Jesus means to them.
