Alton Webteam: December 2015
Alpha — now here!
Following on from our very successful Alpha course earlier this year, we will, as GAP be running our second Alpha course in the New Year.
Who is it for? Anyone and everyone! It is for all those who are asking questions and searching, all those who would like to do a refresher course on the basic principals of Christianity, for all those who wish to re-engage and re-connect with God, for all those who wish to deepen their faith and all those who are curious and wondering what is this faith stuff all about anyhow.
Why not have a word with someone who completed the course earlier this year and ask them?!
We do ask you to pray for the course and those who will be taking part and to consider how you might be involved.
The course commences on Thursday 7th January 2016. The Alpha evenings start with a meal together at 7:30pm and end prompt at 9:30pm. Everyone is welcome.
