St. Joseph’s is running Alpha from 19 September on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in St. Joseph’s Foyer
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to
encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly,
open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free
to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
How Does it work?
Alpha consists of nine sessions with a day away in the middle. Each session includes
food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. 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. It’s fun,
it’s free, it’s relaxed and you can ask anything you like.
Is it for Catholics?
Yes. Alpha is a tool for evangelisation that is being used by thousands of Catholic parishes in over 70 countries around the world. Alpha is also run by churches of many other denominations to introduce people to the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. This has led to more than 24 million people around the world experiencing Alpha. In particular, it is attracting many young people who are asking the question, ‘Is there more to life than this?’ See the alpha website home for more details.
Why not come along? Why not bring a friend?
