The Alpha Course

The Alpha Course at St Bernadette’s
We are delighted to announce that St Bernadette Catholic Secondary School and the Parish of St Bernadette will be running the Alpha Course on Thursday evenings from 7pm to 8.30pm, starting January 9th 2020 for 11 weeks.

What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explores the basics of the Christian faith.

Who’s it for?
Alpha is for anyone who’s curious to explore the big questions of life, faith and meaning. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.

How does it work?
Run over a number of weeks, each session has three things in common: food, a short talk and a discussion where you can share your thoughts. There’s no pressure and no follow up.

How much is it?
There is no charge

An initial meeting, for anyone wishing to find out more about the Alpha Course, will be held at the school on

Thursday 10th October from 5pm to 6pm.  Light refreshments will be provided.

Further details can be found on the parish website at https://stbernadettewhitchurch.org/alpha
