Alpha at Mount Zion Church The Alpha course at Mount Zion Alpha at Mount Zion Church

Mount Zion Church are running the Alpha course during this autumn, and we would love to meet new friends!
Everyone is welcome to come and investigate Alpha with us. We start off at 18:30 on Thursday nights with some food and conversation together. This is followed by a short video outlining the topic for discussion, then we break up into smaller groups to discuss what we have seen, and what we think about that nights subject.
It is also a great opportunity to get know each other, and ask those burning questions, or just to come and listen to the conversation.

About the Alpha course

Mount Zion Church and congregation

The Alpha course as an introduction to the basics of the Chirstian life.
Alpha started in 1977 by Reverend Charles Marnham, and has grown far and wide.
The course is broken up into 11 sessions, each session focusing on an aspect of the Christian life. Each session usually starts with food and conversation, then moves onto watching a video introduction for the sessions subject. After which, everyone splits off into small groups that allow you to investigate the subject more closely. They give you a great opertunity to ask the questions you have from both the video, and any other questions about the Christian life.
