We pray that the day will leave you feeling happier than our Patron Saint is in our East Window.
Are you new to Christianity? Have you’ve been thinking about Jesus but want to know more before you take the step of trusting him? Are you a new Christian and want to explore more about what that means? Have you been a Christian for a while and want rethink what Jesus means? Or do you know someone who does? Alpha is a great way to explore questions like these with people who are asking similar things. We meet each week over a meal 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.
If that interests you, please come! Alpha sessions will start on Tuesday 25th February at 6:00pm. There is no commitment or payment required, just a willingness to be open minded to how being a follower of Jesus will change your life. If you would like to know more, please talk to either the Dean or Catriona Johnson.
