From the alpha.org website:
“Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith…”
“Alpha runs in churches, bars, coffee shops and homes all around the globe. Typically Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. Alpha really is for anyone who’s curious. The talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment.”
Freedom in Christ Course
The “Freedom in Christ” course, is run regularly at St. Stephen’s church. The course is a DVD presentation by Steve Goss, with ‘Pause for Thought’ sections when group members can support each other in working through the material.
The Freedom in Christ approach to the Gospel has two components: The 13 week course is the teaching component. Participants are then offered to complete the Steps to Freedom which is the application component. This is a kind, gentle but thorough opportunity for a ‘spiritual spring clean’. Many churches of varied denominations have been greatly benefited by this approach. If you are interested in joining a future course please contact Madeline Light
the grace course
The Grace Course is a new course from Freedom in Christ Ministries.
“…It teaches the wonderful truths of grace but has an emphasis on helping people experience that grace. There are practical exercises, times of listening to God and a gentle ministry component, The Steps To Experiencing God’s Grace.”
Please contact Madeline Light if interested.
