Alpha Course: Would you like the opportunity to explore the Christian faith in an informal setting? The Alpha Course is an excellent introduction to the Christian faith or a refresher for those who want to grow in their faith. A new course begins on Monday evenings at St Mary’s Vicarage, from 30th September. Each session starts at 7.30pm with a simple meal, followed by a talk and a time for discussion, where ‘no question is too simple and no question is too hostile’. If you would like to give Alpha a try, call Robin and Juliet Grayson (542068). To read more about Alpha, visit their website: www.alpha.org
