Alpha has some answers to your questions

Alpha is a non-denominational opportunity for anyone to explore Christianity.

Alpha is a non-denominational opportunity for anyone to explore Christianity.

Why would anyone want to do that? Well, perhaps at some point you have wondered:

What is Christianity anyway? Who is Jesus? How does his life and death have any meaning? Is Christianity the truth or simply boring, untrue and irrelevant?

Find out what it means to have a relationship with God. At Alpha, you will listen, learn, discuss and discover. Ask anything. No question is too simple or too hostile.

The Alpha course is a free series of 10 sessions, which consist of meeting once a week, sharing a meal together in a relaxed non-threatening atmosphere of friendship, followed by a video talk. After each talk, there is a time for discussion and questions.

Alpha is for everyone. Those of you who want to investigate Christianity, new Christians and Christians who have lost their way or who want to brush up on the basics will find Alpha is the answer.

Alpha is being offered in Black Creek as home group meetings. Alpha administrators Barbara and Michael Tubb have been involved in the Alpha program for many years now and actively support the “home group” meetings.

This fall, it will be offered in Black Creek Sunday evenings, beginning at 6 p.m. for dinner and finishing at 9 p.m. For further information or to sign up for the course, call Barbara at 250-337-5660 or Heather at 250-337-8788.
