Mumbles Alpha Course

Starting on Wednesday January 10th 2018 – 7.00p.m at Mumbles Methodist Church

The Alpha Course is a short practical introduction to the Christian faith. It started in the early 1990’s at Holy Trinity Brompton, an Anglican Church in London and has been a huge success, so much so that that last year it was being run in over 8000 churches in Britain and in over 130 countries worldwide.

Alpha is for everyone and is based around a meal and includes a DVD presentation and short discussion. It is relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.

‘This is our 15th course and promises to be as exciting as all the rest. We will begin with a meal and then watch a large screen Alpha presentation. I invite anyone who wants to find out more about the Christian faith to come along. It’s friendly and fun and there is absolutely no pressure to say, do or sign up for anything.
