ALPHA Course

at Church of the Saviour

Have you ever desired to explore the Christian faith in an open, friendly, questions-are-welcome atmosphere? Do you have questions about God or who Jesus Christ is but don't have any place to ask them?

The Alpha course is a 10-week opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed environment with others who are also exploring Christianity. Each week a different topic is presented in an informal atmosphere, where you may ask questions or just sit and listen. Some topics include: "Who Is Jesus?", "Why Did Jesus Die?" and "How Can I Be Sure of My Faith?"

The Next step: rooted

Rooted is an 11-week experience designed to help you connect to God, the church and your purpose, relevant for anyone wherever you are in your spiritual journey. It is recommended as the next connecting point for people finishing Alpha or who are new to Church of the Saviour looking for community, built as the group connects around studying the Bible, prayer, sharing stories and serving.

Alpha FAQ

Now more than ever people are asking the bigger questions in life: Why am I here? Why is all this happening? What is my purpose? and What can I do? Join us at Alpha to explore these topics from a Christian perspective.  

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE ALPHA COURSE?
After some opening remarks, there will be a video presentation on a topic about the Christian faith. Individuals are then given an opportunity to discuss informally in breakout groups what they thought about the presentation. Some people ask questions, some don't; the choice is yours. No one will call on you to answer questions, but if you do have questions about the topic, or would like to share differing perspectives, this is the time.
   
WHEN IS THE NEXT ALPHA?
The Introduction for the next Alpha Course begins on January 12 from 7:30-9:00. The Alpha course is being run all over the globe, designed for people outside a church setting to come and have a conversation about life and faith. Everyone is welcome at Alpha! Invite your family and friends to join your group as well.
