The Alpha Film Series


 

Register for our next Information Night June 12th 2017

 

'Alpha' is a Greek word meaning 'the beginning'. The Alpha course is an up to date, easy to understand explanation of the Christian faith and serves as 'the beginning' of a new spiritual journey or new understanding.

We believe that many New Zealanders do not accurately understand Christianity and therefore carry many misconceptions about the faith.

On the course, participants can ask any questions they like. All opinions are treated with respect.  No question is unimportant and no question is 'dumb'. The course features a video presentation, in a humorous, relaxed way followed by a small group discussion where no questions are 'off limits'.
The evening starts with dinner and finishes with an invitation to attend next week.

The current Alpha slogan is "Keep Searching". The U2 song may sum up where many New Zealanders are today when the lyrics say ..."But I still haven't found what I'm looking for".
This Alpha course then is for everyone and anyone who is 'searching' for what they 'still haven't found'.

Our next course is starting on June 12th 2017 at 7:00pm and runs Monday evenings for 12 weeks. We suggest a $5 koha for dinner each evening. No Koha requested for The information night
