All welcome. Especially you. Scroll down for more info and to sign up
During this time of COVID-19, we are running alpha online, via the Zoom app. By signing up below, you will get details about this and how to join the meeting each week.
Please note, whilst most people will access zoom via a smartphone/tablet/computer, it is also possible to call in on a phone, for those with no internet access - let us know below if you might need this.
Alpha Online will start at 8:10pm each Thursday with the first session on Thursday 14th May
At 8:10pm will be a chance to check everyone is connected, say hi and catch up a little
We will then watch a 15 minute pre-recorded talk via Zoom on an aspect of the Christian faith
After the talk will be the main part of alpha - small group discussion. You will be in a small group of no more than 10 people for this, and we will try to ensure groups stay the same week to week
Open discussion is the heart of alpha - this is where you can share your thoughts and questions and listen to others. Differing opinions are welcomed and all questions encouraged
2 or 3 facilitators will be in the group to help discussion flow, but their job is simply that - they are not there to direct the group towards any 'right answers.' They will try to ensure everyone is able to participate and that people are listened to without judgement.
The course will finish by 9:30 each week at the very latest.
Facilitators will stay around for a little longer if anyone wants to chat further.
When you sign up, we will email you details of how to log into Zoom to take part in our Alpha Course. This will include the Meeting ID, password and URL that will get you access to the meeting.
We will only use your details to send information and updates about the course, unless you subsequently give us express permission otherwise.
