Coming up

Alpha at Christ Church Ellerslie

What is it?

Alpha is an 11 week course exploring the questions of life and faith from a Christian perspective. It is designed to help answer questions and open up conversations about God, meaning, what following Jesus looks like. It is a great opportunity to invite your non-Christian friends or family to find out more. Our Alpha Course will run on Sunday evenings.

But what is it?

It is a gathering for a meal and a video discussion hosted by a friendly team of trained members of our church. We will gather at 5:00pm to eat at 5:15pm. At 6:00pm we’ll kick off our video for the evening and finish the conversation by 7:30pm. You can watch a short promo video for Alpha here.

Who is it for?

Everyone! But places are limited and registration is essential for catering purposes. We also want to make this a family-friendly space (finding a weekly baby-sitter for 11 weeks is tricky and expensive) so kids are very welcome for the meal and we’ll put on a supervised movie for them while the adults watch the Alpha video.

Alpha is a great refresher for the Christian basics. So if you’ve been at church for a bit but feel rusty or less confident in your faith, then this can be a great tool for reminding you again of the core heart of God’s love for us and mercy seen in Jesus Christ.
