Alpha

Alpha

Dear Reader,

Due to the Corona Virus situation in the Netherlands, we have postponed final sessions of our Alpha Course. We hope to continue the course using online discussion. We hope to know more in the coming week. Please watch this space!

Thank you,

Revd Grant Crowe, (Minister, All Saints Amersfoort).

We are starting our first Alpha Course on Tuesday 21st January…and we’d like to invite you to join us…

So why join Alpha and what is it all about?

You could say, it is about growing closer to Jesus, our lives more shaped by his, following more closely in his footsteps, living the life, he invites and calls us to…

This is all through food, a talk, and honest warm discussion.

To know more about exactly what happens at an Alpha Course evening? Why not watch this video?

Why do Alpha? Good question:  Here are some ideas… 

Refresher in the core beliefs and practices of our faith – at times we drift away or make things complicated.

To grow in our discipleship

To grow in talking about our faith

  Chance to invite people who don’t know Jesus (very well)

To get to know each other better – great investment in growing as a community!

A journey we take with others in coming closer to the King of Kings.

For who:         Every one in All Saints Church between 18-80 yrs old

                        For your friends and family members who have an interest in getting to know Jesus (better)

Place:              Nieuwe Erven, Heiligenbergerweg 144, 3816 AN Amersfoort (our regular home on Sunday mornings)
