Alpha at St. David’s or at Home

From Monday, June 15th, 2020 until Monday, August 24th, 2020

Who is Jesus? How can I have faith? How can I make the most of the rest of my life?

Are these the sorts of questions you have been asking? Or do you know someone who has?

Whether you are exploring Christianity, are a new Christian or have been one for a while, Alpha is for you.

Alpha is a great way to explore questions like these with people who are asking similar things in a fun, low-key, no-pressure environment.

Each week we meet for about an hour and a half to share our thoughts and ideas on who we think Jesus is and what it means to be a Christian. The course runs for 11 weeks.

If that interests you, Great! We’d love to see you. Everyone is welcome and you can join after we start.

Alpha at the Cathedral starts on Monday 15th June at 7pm at 121 Macquarie St

Or if you prefer

Alpha at Home starts on Zoom on Thursday 18th June at 7pm. Zoom link is Alpha at Home Zoom link

No expectation or payment required, just a willingness to be open minded to how being a follower of Jesus will change your life.
