The Alpha course enabled me to question lots of elements of my faith and the Holy Spirit day was very moving and an amazing Day. I got to know the people on the course on a different level and have extended my church family.

I really enjoyed Alpha- despite being nervous at the start, it was great to make new friends and have some interesting discussions. We all really looked forward to our Monday Alpha every week!

The Alpha Course was a necessary life-changing moment. Ironically, in the beginning, I was not aware of this personal need. It was not as a ‘miracle’, as something ‘spectacular’, but a progressive and meaningful change of myself as a Christian, a reflection on my values and my personal goals. On top of that, it was also a pleasure to meet such wonderful people that supported me so much at the beginning of this new life journey. Thank you.

My Alpha experience was amazing, it certainly was a refreshing and insightful way to share the word in a relaxed manner. It was also interactive and questions raised helped me get deeper understanding of the Christian journey. Also, you get to make new friends which was really good for me as we just moved into the community.

Going along to an Alpha course was really a great way to get a better understanding of what faith is, and the course helped me personally with some of life’s tougher questions. Since Alpha, I now feel my faith is stronger and I have a deeper and more fulfilling relationship with Jesus, which has helped me become a better person and I see life differently, more positively. I love Alpha and the people that I’ve met through the course I’m still friends with, and we continue to support and encourage each other.
