Hopefully most of you will know that we are starting the Alpha course on Wednesday nights 7.30-9.30 (beginning this Wednesday 18th for 10 weeks). The alpha course is for anyone who is wondering if there is more to life than this, what all this God stuff is about or what it means to be a Christian. It is a time where we can join together for a meal, think about life, the world around us and faith and chat to lots of different people.

Alpha’s national campaign at the minute sees Bear Grylls speak of how putting his faith in Jesus has been his greatest adventure and it really is a wonderful adventure! Many of the people of St Paul’s came to believe and trust in Jesus through attending an alpha course and they all say it was a brilliant experience. In Long Loaf this week Billy shared about how alpha didn’t just give him a better understanding of who God is but also brought him lasting friendships with the people that he attended the course with – “the social part was just as important”.

So, maybe Alpha sounds like what you’re looking for? Great! Sign up on the sheet at the back of church or let Greg or Kirsty know that you’re planning on coming.

Maybe you’ve had a faith in Jesus for years, great! So who could you invite to come to Alpha? Who is the one person that Jesus is asking you to share your faith with? Invite them! Take as many flyers as you like from the back and invite as many people as possible.

We want to see people join this amazing adventure: a life with Jesus Christ.
