“Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I trust your commands.”
Looking closely at a topic in groups allows us to express ourselves and share ideas. It helps us establish relationships with others and to make the best of the circumstances we’re in. That’s why we run courses at TBC and in partnership with other local agencies.
Discussion, and some input from a facilitator help us find our way through seasons of growth and change. Spaces can be limited, so we encourage registration before hand – contact the church office.
All our courses are free of charge unless otherwise specified.
A free course that anyone can access in the format of a series of 8 short videos exploring the basic issues of life. We look at questions such as ‘Does God exist?’ or ‘What about suffering?’ – we base each course around the questions you ask. These are available on our website and Facebook page. After Faithlook, for those who want to learn and experience more on their faith journey can join the next Alpha course.
Over 2 million people in the UK have attended an Alpha Course – an opportunity to explore the meaning of life, running in churches of all denominations across the world. Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over 8 thought provoking weekly sessions.
Alpha is open to anyone! It may be that you are searching for a relationship with God, want to understand more about faith, would benefit from going through the basics again or you would like to learn to explain your faith more clearly to those who are asking you questions. Alpha is a place where no question is regarded as too simple or too hostile. Ask anything.
The course is completely free and includes a freshly cooked hot meal. There will be a short talk, followed by an opportunity to discuss issues raised in the evening or ask questions of a more general nature as we chat in small groups.
The next Alpha course starts on Tuesday 18 April at 7:30pm. Sign up now to explore the meaning of life together.
