Christ Church & St Paul's Together in Paignton
It's all about Jesus!
If you have been thinking perhaps there's more to life and would like the opportunity to explore what the Bible has to say about God, why not come along to our next Alpha?
Our most recent Alpha Course at St Paul's ran from September to November 2019.
if you would like to come along to the next one, please contact our Vicar, John Pout (link below) - you will be very welcome.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith and is designed for people who may or may not believe in God but would like to have the chance to explore it.
The engaging talks (videos with Rev Nicky Gumbel) last around thirty minutes, followed by open discussion.
Each week it looks at the big issues around faith and unpacks the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from
Probably the most important part is the chance to share thoughts and experience and to simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (seriously!). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Here's the programme:
Week 1 Is there more to life than this?
Week 2 Who is Jesus?
Week 3 Why did Jesus die?
Week 4 How can I have faith?
Week 5 Why and how should I pray?
Week 6 Why should I read the Bible?
Week 7 How does God guide us?
Week 8 Who is the Holy Spirit?
Week 9 How can I resist evil?
Week 10 Does God heal today? & What about the church?
So why not give it a try? The absolute worst that could happen is that you don't like it and then all that means is you wasted an evening, but you might just discover that there really is a God and that He's interested in you. That really would be worth risking an evening for!
If you would like to book your place on our next Alpha, or maybe just have an initial chat about it, please give me a call or click here to send me an email.
