Alpha At Rothwell Baptist

‘Churches Together in Rothwell’ regularly offers the internationally known Alpha Course. This year it was held on our new premises from Christmas to Easter.

Alpha is an informal exploration of Christianity which has proved very popular with people of firm faith, doubtful faith or no faith at all. A talk is followed by discussion in small groups. Guests are encouraged to share their views and questions freely and have found this very refreshing in a culture where personal faith is often a taboo subject.

The Taster Evening on is when we hear from people who have had their lives challenged and changed by Jesus.

Thsi time our special guest was Leeds Rhinos player Jamie Jones Buchanan who explained how he came to faith and how it affects his life and career.

Topics then covered were:

Who is Jesus?
Why did Jesus die?
How can we have faith?
Why and how do I pray?
Why and how should I read the Bible?
How does God guide us?
How can I resist evil?
Why and how should I tell others?
Does God heal today?
What about the Church?

Plus a Saturday Away Day on the Holy Spirit.

There is no cost apart from a voluntary contribution for the meals, and £10 for the AwayDay.
