Blog November 18th Alpha Taster

Bathe Me In Your Light featuring Lucy Stimpson- Maynard from the album I Look Up To The Heavens recorded and produced by John Hodginson

Alpha is introduction to the Christian faith and from October 19th to November 9th 2017 I shared my experiences of Alpha with you- and my experiences were absolutely great. Later, however when I have been involved in helping to run Alpha courses, I have realised that after the first week “Who is Jesus” things get quite a bit more challenging for those in the early stages of their faith. “Who is Jesus” was easy because it is not too difficult, based on the weight of evidence, to accept that Jesus is an historical figure. Week 2, however focuses on why He died and can include theological ideas such as redemption, atonement and justification – pretty heavy stuff in week two especially if you are just coming to grips with the idea that there is a God!
So, starting Alpha from further back in the journey – exploring whether or not we can believe in God makes sense and that is exactly what Richard England, the Holy Rood Vicar did on Monday for an Alpha Taster evening.
It is our featured video and really is worth a watch.
