It was wonderful to see so many people taking communion for the first time last Sunday. One of the advantages of confirmation is that there is a short confirmation course. Most people find they learn quite a lot through that, and build relationships within the group. This autumn we would like to take that principle further and run another one of our Alpha courses. Alpha is for people who would like to know more about the Christian faith. The entire format has changed. Toby, who will be in charge of the Bristol Resourcing Church has a big part to play in the new presentation.
Although many of the themes are the same as before, the presentation is entirely different. Each episode is about half an hour long. It is no longer based on a single person speaking. But the aim is the same: to help Christians to grow in their understanding and love of God and of his people. We aim to start our next Alpha course at the end of September.
