Courses We Run

In this church we want to see people grow in their relationship with Christ and so at times during each year we run a number of courses which are designed to help people grow in some aspect of the Christian faith. See weekly news for when courses are running, or contact our office for more information.

Becoming a Christian - Alpha Course

Looking for answers?

The Alpha Course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening setting over ten thought-provoking weekly sessions. It is low-key, friendly and fun. Everyone is welcome on the course - anyone who is wanting to investigate Christianity, new Christians, newcomers to St George's, and for those who want to brush up on the basics.

The course explores the following questions:

· Is there more to life than this? (Introductory Talk)
·Who is Jesus?
· Why did Jesus die?
· How can we have faith? (picture)
· Why and how do I pray?
· Why and how should I read the Bible?
· How does God guide us?
· Who is the Holy Spirit?

· How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?
· How can I resist evil?
· Why and how should we tell others?
