What is Alpha?
The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith.
The Alpha course in 2017 is being held at The Vicarage, Guildford Road, Westcott.
Each evening follows this format:
7.45pm Welcome - Light refreshments
8.10pm Watch DVD which features a talk on an aspect of the Christian faith
presented in a lively, informative way
9.00pm Group discussion on the talk - all are free to say whatever they wish
and ask any questions (staying silent is ok too!)
We aim to make each evening relaxed and fun.
The Alpha course is an excellent way to explore the Christian faith and get to know other people.
Numerous courses have been run in Westcott, attended by over 100 people. There has been virtually unanimous appreciation of the course.
The course includes the option of a day away. This is a key part of the course, so please write down the date in your diary now.
