Alpha Course

We run Alpha Courses at Ballygilbert from time to time and they are open to anyone who would like to explore the Christian faith.

Reasons to attend Alpha

The course has been a significant factor in encouraging many in our church in their faith and in bringing some to a new faith in Christ:

  • You'll be able to ask any questions you want, but no one will ask you anything!
  • You'll make new friends and be well fed
  • It's free and open to absolutely everyone

So what is Alpha?

Alpha is run over 10 meetings (with a meal) and looks at questions such as:

  • Is Christianity true, relevant or interesting?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why did Jesus die?
  • Why and how should I read the Bible?
  • Who is the Holy Spirit?
  • How does God guide us?
  • Does God heal today?

Each meeting consists of a meal, a talk and a discussion.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who wants to know more - from those who have been Christians for years to those with no faith. You do not have to be a member of any church. Everyone is welcome, the atmosphere is very informal and you can ask any question.

It is also a good opportunity to develop friendships.

Bring a friend, someone in your family, someone in need, anyone who is curious or unsure of their belief.
