Alpha Course

We are delighted that the Knaresborough Team is holding our first Alpha course in 2020. The aim of the Alpha course is to create a space for people to bring friends for a conversation about faith, life, & God. Last year 30,000 churches and over 1.3 million people took part in Alpha and the course has been running successfully for over 30 years.

Alpha is aimed at anybody who wants to find out more about faith, Christianity and who want to ask some of the big questions of life. No question is too big or too small. Normally Alpha begins with a meal together (always a highlight), then introduces a particular topic or question with input from films and speakers with a chance for participants to discuss what they’ve seen and ask their own questions.

At the moment our Alpha is on line with Zoom but we bring our nibbles and drinks with us!! Alpha helps people start or continue their own faith journey, and is a great way to invite friends and neighbours into a relaxed and friendly atmosphere to find out more. The course is running well and we are enjoying it and would love it if you would think about being part of our next Alpha. This might be on-line or face to face depending on lockdown situation but it will be fantastic and fun and whether we are on zoom or together we are really looking forward to hosting our guests. So please think, could that be you or someone you know? In which case contact either Revd Garry or Revd Stroma and we can tell you more about the next course and put your name down, you’ll be glad you did.
