THE ALPHA COURSE
We have been running the Alpha Course in Melbourne for about twenty years now and for many it has been a wonderful experience. We recognise that a normal Sunday morning service often assumes that those attending have a reasonable understanding of the Christian faith - the Alpha course assumes the opposite! It really goes "back to basics" and explains what Christianity is all about - not what what we have turned it into over the centuries!
The course follows a tried and tested format originally set out by the church from which it originated Holy Trinity Brompton - an Anglican Church in London. A typical course may have between 6 to 12 attendees and people come from all different walks of life, but all have the same desire: a wish to understand "is there more to life than this?"
The atmosphere is very informal and everyone is able to stay well within their 'comfort zone' - taking as much or as little an active part in any discussions as they wish. You do not have to be a church member (anywhere!) to attend.
The talks include:
Who is Jesus?
Why did Jesus die?
How can I be sure of my faith?
Why and how should I read the bible?
Why and how should I pray?
How does God guide us?
How can I resist evil?
Why and how should we tell others
Does God heal today?
What about the church?
Melbourne Methodist Church runs a course almost every year so please enquire if you are interested.
