Alpha Course

The Alpha course is an exploration of the meaning of life and relationship with Jesus - whether you're interested in finding out more or brushing up on the basics, this is an opportunity to interact or to just sit back and listen.

What did others think of the last course?
"relaxed and laid back"
"safe to ask questions and I've made a lot of friends"
"no pressure to conform"

The Alpha Course at PBC

The Alpha Course outlines what Christianity is including answering questions like 'who is Jesus', 'who is the Holy Spirit', 'what about pain' and many others.  It offers a brunch meal to start the morning or a meal if held in the evening enabling you to get to know the others on the course.  This is followed by a talk or DVD and opportunities to ask questions and clarify what you've heard in small groups.  

The next Alpha Invitation Supper is being held on Saturday 23rd September 2017 when all are welcome to come and have a taster of what the Alpha Course is all about.  The course itself will run on Thursdays from 7pm-9pm starting on 28th September.

For more information and to book on the course, please contact the PBC Church office by email to office@pemburybaptistchurch.org or by phone to 01892 825590.
