4 years ago I nearly did youth alpha, but I ended up missing the first week so felt I couldn’t join after that. So I missed an opportunity then, but was still curious about Alpha therefore it was great to have the chance to do the adult course recently.

The topics covered each week proved enormously interesting, and thanks to the variety of ages, backgrounds, experiences and opinions in the group, we had a great time in discussion together. I thought the talks were fantastic, full of real life examples and therefore easy to relate to. I thought the layout of the evening worked a treat too, with a delicious meal to begin with and chat over before the talk. The talk presented all the key points, and then it was down to us to discover more in discussion.

I would definitely recommend the Alpha course to anyone. It is deeply encouraging, and can clear up any uncertainties about the Christian faith in a calm and relaxed environment. Ask away is the tip!

My Story – Mark

I came to the Alpha course as an Alpha male who had been outwardly successful in business but inwardly was a failure and had alienated loved ones to such an extent that I was lonely and unfulfilled.

The course is well structured, built on the key cornerstones of the Christian faith. It deals with real issues for real people and draws heavily on the personal experiences of those that run and attend the course.  

St Johns was a wonderful setting for this journey and blends the spiritual with the homely.  Food is served and there is plenty of opportunity to build friendships and to share experiences with a broad cross section of people.  

I have found the course and the interaction with the Church to be life changing and now have a far deeper sense of spiritual understanding.  I live each day as it comes and have faith in God to make the big decisions in my life.  I am at peace.

For anyone that is troubled or needs to redefine their priorities and seek comfort through Christ, I would thoroughly recommend the Alpha course as a way to faith and spiritual contentment.

When I came to hear about Christianity a short time ago, I was very eager to know more about God, so the Alpha course was attractive to me and I went on the course.

I found the course exceeded my expectations. The teaching was well structured, informative and inspiring.
The discussions were lively, thought provoking and conducted in a very friendly and encouraging manner.
I also liked the food which made a nice social atmosphere.
Quickly, I felt very attached to St John's and started to attend to learn more.  Six months later I was Baptised. This church has become my spiritual home and subsequently I have been involved in many church activities and made new friends.

My friends and family have noticed that I am more joyful and feeling more peaceful after I have come to faith through Jesus Christ. The experience has changed my life in a positive and exciting way.
My vision is to continue my spiritual growth and to have a positive impact on others, of course with all the strength of Jesus Christ.
