Alpha

THE ALPHA COURSE AT ST JOAN’S

Ask faith questions, share ideas, build friendships and experience the love of God through
the power of the Holy Spirit.

·         First up there’s FOOD because it’s a great way to relax and build community.

·         Then a TALK on DVD, around 30 minutes, designed to engage and inspire conversation.

·         Followed by DISCUSSION – the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic in an honest,
friendly and open environment

“I was going to Mass but yearned for something more. I came across Alpha: I loved the warm and inviting atmosphere – spiritually enlightening but in a really gentle way. I felt I was experiencing the fullness of life like I hadn’t known before.” – Ben, Catholic Alpha participant.

Choose either Thursday mornings 10.30-12.00 or Sunday evenings 6.45 – 8.45pm
