Alpha Course in Lowestoft
Alpha is a multi-week course that creates a space where people come and discuss life’s big questions.
Developed as a short course for a church in London in 1990, many people outside of the church wanted to explore the Christian faith. Since being opened up to anyone wanting explore life, faith & meaning, millions of people have experienced Alpha in over 100 countries and over 100 languages around the globe.
We run Alpha course in Lowestoft regularly at London Road Baptist Church.
Our recent Alpha course started on Tuesday 8th February. We have yet to announce the next dates.
Explore Life, Faith, and Meaning
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over ten weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Alpha is 10 weeks of space to explore your views on life and faith.
it is for people who have lots of questions, who wouldn't consider themselves Christians, and who want to set aside time to delve deeper into what they believe and why.
Each week we will:
* have a meal together
* hear personal stories of how encountering Jesus has changed lives
*Watch a short film presenting key elements of the Christian faith
*Have discussion time where you can share your views, debate, and discuss.
