Alpha Starting

Just a reminder that Alpha starts this week. The evening course is at 7.30pm on Wednesday in The Kerith Centre where there will be a meal, a talk, time to meet new people and an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. The daytime course starts at 10am on Thursday in K2 and replaces the meal from the evening with tea, coffee, cake and a crèche! It's a brilliant course for anyone who wants to find out more about Jesus and the Christian faith, or is looking to grow in their faith. You can just turn up for the start of either course, although it would really help us if you were able to let us know you are coming by either phoning reception on 01344 862699 or sending an email.

Geeks like me may be interested to know that there's a really cool iPhone app for Alpha. It contains the course manuals, links to the location of courses near where you are, space to write notes and a whole load of other great stuff. It's free from the app store. Sadly we're not able to give an iPhone to everyone attending the course (that would get attendance up!) so this time round we'll just be giving out paper manuals. I did see an article recently about a cafe in Croatia which has replaced newspapers with iPads, so perhaps that may be a possibility one day!

Hope to see you at Alpha!

Simon.

I dont like being too negative, however yet again the Alpha course is being run on a Wednesday evening, since being at the Kerith for nearly 3 years its the only day I have seen it run on.

Though I hope everyone gets alot out of it

Hi Jason. Thanks for your comments - that's not being negative, just a very helpful observation. We will probably be running Alpha again in September - I can't make any promises but what day of the week would work for you? Simon.

Thanks for your reply Simon, any other evening than a Wednesday evening, I running a Cub Scout pack on a Wednesday. Once again thank you for listening and your reply.

Hi Jason. Watch out when we announce the September Alpha dates - I'm hoping we may be able to run it on a different night of the week.
