Alpha Course Crossroads Church

Begin the new year with a fresh start and join the Alpha Course!


What is Alpha?


Alpha is a series of 11 sessions of exploring the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question about faith and is designed to encourage conversation. Alpha is the ideal place for first time explorers, but also a great way of deepening or reaffirming your faith. 
 

What does an Alpha evening look like?

 
First up, there's food
Whether it's a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It's no different at Alpha. All sessions start with a meal as it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.
 
Then a video
The videos are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore big issues around faith and unpack some of the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
 
Followed by discussion
One of the most meaningful aspect of Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on faith in a comfortable small group setting.  There's no pressure to speak and there’s also nothing you can't say or share (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.


 

When?

Date: Alpha starts 28 January 2019 near Scheveningen.
Time: Every Alpha evening starts at 7 pm with a lovely dinner provided. 
 

Sign up together!

Some people may find it challenging to sign-up alone, especially when new to church or even just the thought of exploring faith.  If that’s the case, we encourage you to come and bring someone along, even if you've done the course before. Consider those around you who would be open to coming along with you and sign-up together.

You can sign up using the sign-up sheet at the Connection Table in church on Sunday mornings, or by sending an e-mail to the Alpha team alpha@crossroadschurch.nl.
 

Costs

There is no charge for attending the Alpha course. However, we will ask a small contribution to help cover meal and weekend getaway costs. 

 

Want to help out?

Interested in getting involved in making it all happen? The Alpha Course can't be held without the help of dedicated volunteers. If you would like to help, please contact alpha@crossroadschurch.nl. We’re always grateful for more people who can pitch in to host, cook or pray.
