YOUTH ALPHA Q&A

WHO IS YOUTH ALPHA COURSE FOR?

The Alpha course attracts a diverse range of guests, including people of different ages and backgrounds, all with differing viewpoints, and at all different levels of faith. Some of the questions we’ll explore are: How Does God Guide Us? Who is Jesus? Why and how do I pray? How can I develop a relationship with God? What about the Church? Is there more to life than this? No question is too simple, too tough or too out there. Try us.

WHEN DOES THE COURSE START AND END?

The Youth Alpha Kick-off is Thursday, Sept 12th 6:00pm – 8:00 pm. You can register right here! We need to know if you are coming so we can plan for dinner for you.
