Alpha at Stour Valley Vineyard

29 August 2018 No Comment

We are really excited to be running our next free 8-week course, here at Stour Valley Vineyard starting on Wednesday 19 September, 7:30pm at the Vineyard Centre, Tudor Road, Sudbury, CO10 1NP.

Alpha is a fantastic series of sessions that gives people the opportunity to explore the Christian faith and the freedom to ask those all-important questions such as whether God exists, or about what happens after death, and what the purpose of life is, or what the bible says about things that they are currently experiencing in their life. Each of our sessions follows the Alpha format:

First up there’s Food

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Our sessions start with a pudding and a drink because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Then a Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Each one is a video played on a large screen, lasting around twenty to thirty minutes. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Followed by Discussion

Probably the most important part of our Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

So, if you are looking to explore more about the Christian faith or maybe you know someone that would find Alpha really helpful in their own journey you can find out more at:
