ALPHA COURSE IN MANCHESTER
THE ALPHA COURSE
The Alpha Course is an introduction to Christianity that has been experienced by over 27 million people in 169 countries.
It is a series of evenings, each with an online meeting including an introduction, a video exploring an aspect of the Christian faith and the opportunity for breakout discussion groups on the topic that the video covered.
There will also be lots of opportunities to ask any questions that you may have.
CCM will be running an online Alpha Course, beginning in January 2021.
The course will be made up of six Tuesday evening sessions, each starting at 8pm and running for one hour.
You will get the most benefit from the course if you commit to attending all of the sessions. However, if this is not possible we would still encourage you to participate and we will make sure you can catch up on the content that you missed.
