The Alpha Course – Fall 2017

The Alpha Course Student Leaders

Alpha is a chance for the guests to ask anything and say what they think.

The role of student leaders is to listen; not to have all the answers or to win an argument. Love them, be interested in them, and be respectful towards them. They will be expected to arrive one hour before the start time of each scheduled session. In addition, there will be required training for hosts and helpers from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Sunday, August 20 – Training 1 – Small Groups
  • Thursday, October 12 – Training 2 – Prayer and the Day Away

There will be a $400 scholarship offered to student leaders during the fall of 2017. Interested?

Alpha is a chance to explore and question the meaning of life.

During this course, you will find out about the basics of the Christian faith. Each session involves a main talk and some time to say what you think. It’s fun, relaxed, free and you can ask anything you like. The Alpha Course is 11 sessions plus a day away. Each session includes a delicious meal, practical talks and time for group discussion. At any point, if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem. There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
