The Alpha Course is a chance to think about life's big questions and consider whether Jesus' teachings and example has any relevance to our life today.
It lasts for 8 sessions, which we will be running on a Tuesday evening. Each session lasts about an hour.
The promo video gives you an idea about the course and how each week's video will look.
How each week will work:
A couple of days before you'll get an email with the Zoom link (it's the same link for every session) and a copy of the week's handout
At 7pm on Tuesday you'll join the Zoom call and be welcomed by Dave, who is hosting the course.
You'll go into your breakout room with your small group - about 6-10 people. You'll stay with the same small group throughout the course and it's a great way to get to know others. This first time in the group is just a chance to quickly say hi and catch up with others. Each breakout room has a host who will welcome you and help conversation flow.
Back in the main Zoom call Dave will briefly introduce the theme of the week.
We'll then watch the week's video. They last about 20-25 minutes and are fast paced and interesting. We'll watch them on Zoom, but if there are any problems you'll also have the link to watch them on a webpage.
We return to our small groups to discuss what we think about the theme.
Once you've finished your discussion you leave the meeting... and we'll see you next week!
