Advent


The season of Advent is both one of looking back and one of looking forward. In one sense, it is a bit like going to the bookshelf and restarting your favorite book each year even though you know the ending.

In Advent, we spend four weeks recapturing the anticipation that was felt by followers of God for generations as they longed for the Messiah to come and undo the pain, suffering and loss of this world – and to usher in a new and better way.

And so Advent is also a season where we look forward in hopeful anticipation to the promise set before us by Jesus that He is coming back again to wipe away every tear and makes all things new. The good news of Advent is not that we are faithful in our waiting (we often aren’t) but that God is faithful in his coming.

This December we have put together a number ways to help us walk together during advent.

Alpha: exploring faith


Alpha Launch night is Monday, October 3 at 6pm

If you are just beginning a spiritual journey or are interested in exploring Christian spirituality in a safe and open setting, Alpha might be for you.

WHAT IS ALPHA?

Alpha is a place where anyone can explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. We share a meal together, watch a short film, and have an open and honest discussion about what it means to have faith. Alpha is an 8 week dinner and discussion series designed for people who wouldn’t describe themselves as Christians. Our team provide Alpha guests with exceptional hospitality and a friendly and respectful environment in which to discuss the big issues of life and the Christian faith.

WHO IS ALPHA FOR?

Alpha is for anyone who would not describe themselves as a Christian.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Alpha runs across ten weekly sessions with an optional weekend away midway through. Each session includes food, a short video and a discussion where guests can share their thoughts. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and everyone is free to discuss as much or as little as they wish. There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
