Daytime Alpha sessions coming to Comox

Alpha, the internationally known program that introduces the basics of the Christian faith, is coming to Comox Community Baptist Church (1250 Anderton Rd. at Daye Rd.) in January.  The daytime sessions run from noon to 2 p.m. (approximate) each Wednesday from Jan. 11 through March 29. Each session includes a lunch followed by a talk and open discussion. Child care will be provided.

Alpha began at Holy Trinity Brompton Anglican Church in London, England, and has been running for more than 30 years in over 100 languages and in 169 countries world-wide. This non-denominational program has been run in homes, schools, coffee shops, churches and even prisons. Its low-key, open approach allows non-believers and believers alike to learn and talk about the essentials of the Christian faith in a non-threatening environment.

To register for this course, call Comox Community Baptist Church (250-339-0224) or email
