Alpha Courses

Courses are run in churches, coffee bars, homes and community venues and are designed to explore some of the big questions of life and faith. Some courses, Youth Alpha, are specifically designed for young people. They are usually run one session per week over several weeks, arranged by negotiation.  They are nationally developed programmes, which are advertised and run locally.  Programmes and materials are available via the website. http://www.alpha.org

Methodist and Church Membership 

Come as you are
Come as you are… explores Christian discipleship and church membership. It was written specifically for use in Methodist churches but could be adapted easily to work in other denominations. The course is well connected with clear links between each part. It is very easy to use. There is a welcome and strong emphasis on prayer and spirituality. It feels like an up to date church membership course.

Compass is a short course that introduces the Christian faith to those who wish to explore its meaning. Like any compass it relates to a particular map and the one intended is Christian discipleship in the Methodist Church.
