The Alpha course is a practical introduction to the Christian faith where the claims of Jesus Christ are presented and discussed in a relaxed, non-threatening environment by anyone seeking to discover more of God in their life.
At WRCC, this course takes place over 8 thought-provoking weekly sessions, including a 3 hour Saturday morning mini-retreat on the Holy Spirit. Each session begins with a meal, followed by a short video talk and then a time to discuss what you've just heard within the context of a small group. During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their thoughts and no question is considered off limits or too simple.
Questions might include—Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? How does God feel about this? How often should I pray? How do I read the Bible?
The Alpha Course has facilitated a worldwide discussion about Jesus Christ, involving more than 18 million guests in 169 countries!
"The Alpha course is super laid back & it's fun. You can just be yourself & be very honest...explore unanswered questions & then make an informed decision"
