Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Listen, learn, discuss & discover. Ask anything. Alpha is run all around the globe and everyone is welcome!
Each of the weekly sessions begins with a meal followed by a presentation and then small group discussion. The small group discussion is aimed at allowing individual participants to share their own faith experiences. Alpha Sessions are run throughout the year. All are welcome!
Next Alpha Session - The Alpha Marriage Course
Starting Thursday, February 16th, the Alpha Marriage Course is a seven week course that provides an opportunity for married, or cohabiting couples, to come together in a relaxing atmosphere to celebrate and strengthen your relationship. The course is based on Christian principles, but designed for all couples with, or without a church background.
It doesn't matter if you've been together one year, or twenty, this is an evening worth the time invested.
Each evening begins in the Social Hall with a simple dinner at 6:30 pm followed by a practical talk and a time for private discussion. The course offers practical ideas and tools to help keep your relationship strong. Background music heightens the experience and ensures private discussion. The course covers:
- Building Strong Foundations
- The Art of Communication
- Resolving Conflict
- The Power of Forgiveness
- The impact of Family - Past & Present
- Developing greater sexual intimacy
- Love in action
The cost for the couple's discussion book is $5.00
Please call (734) 464-1222 or email Deacon Ric at the parish office if you would like to attend, or have any questions.
Alpha Testimonial - Bear Grylls
Bear Grylls. What comes to mind when you read that name?
Jumping out of helicopters into the wild? Eating bugs as a source of protein? Challenging celebrities and presidents to take risks?
The man has climbed Mount Everest. He's ventured to the depths of Antarctica. He even completed the first unassisted crossing of the North Atlantic Arctic Ocean. Bear is the face of adventure in popular culture.
But there's one Bear story you probably haven't seen on television. A story that he calls his greatest adventure.
