Christmas Is Coming – But What Does It Mean?

Christmas will soon be upon us – and we all love to celebrate Christmas. But what is its real significance? Who was Jesus? Early in the New Year we will be starting a new Alpha Course which gives the opportunity to discuss these and other aspects of the Christian faith. If you are interested – or even just curious, why not come for a taster to the Alpha Launch Event on Wednesday 7 January at 7.0 pm, entitled “Christianity: Boring, Untrue and Irrelevant?”

If you find the taster session interesting, the course will continue as follows:
Wed 14 Jan    Week 1 Who is Jesus?
Wed 21 Jan    Week 2 Why did Jesus Die?
Wed 28 Jan    Week 3 How can we have Faith?
Wed 4 Feb      Week 4 Why and how do I Pray?
Wed 11 Feb     Week 5 Why and how should I read the Bible
Wed 18 Feb  No meeting, Half term week and Ash Wednesday
Wed 25 Feb    Week 6 How does God Guide us?
Sat 28 Feb      Holy Spirit Day 10am – 3pm
Wed 4 Mar     Week 7 How can I Resist Evil?
Wed 11 Mar    Week 8 Why and how should I tell Others?
Wed 18 Mar   Week 9 Does God Heal Today?
Wed 25 Mar   Week 10 What about the Church?

All sessions of the course start at 7.0 p.m. and include a meal.

The Alpha course has been organised nationally, but we have found it of great value locally, here at St Paul’s, and over the years a number of people have found a personal experience of Jesus, through it.
