Alpha Course – Thursday Evenings

The Gatehouse will be hosting another Alpha Course. The first session will start on Thursday, 16th January at 7pm.

The course normally consists of 11 sessions, each session includes lunch, a short talk and discussion where you can share your thoughts.

The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. A place where people can ask questions, talk through issues, share honest opinions and make new friends. Usually around thirty minutes long, the sessions are given as a live talk or played as a video, all for free. Food and drinks are available before each session. The sessions explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can I have faith?

There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
