The Alpha Course holds a special place in my heart. My husband Karl gave his life to the Lord during an Alpha course 23 years ago and 12 years ago I was trained as an Alpha Leader at Holy Trinity Brompton. You may ask, what is Alpha? Alpha is an evangelistic course which seeks to introduce the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions. It’s a safe place to ask about anything pertaining to Christianity.

Millions have experienced Alpha in over 100 countries and in over 100 languages around the globe.

Last year 30,000 churches and organisations ran Alpha with over 1.3 million participants.

On 23rd January we are launching an Alpha course at ECB. Preceding the course, we are hosting an Alpha supper on 16th January at 7:45pm for you to invite your friends and family to. Or you may like to attend? Alpha is a great tool for existing Christians who are considering baptism or confirmation and even for those who just want to go deeper in their relationship with God. At the Alpha Supper you will hear what the Alpha course entails whilst enjoying a home cooked meal. You and your friends can then decide whether the Alpha course is something you would like to attend.

If you or/and a friend(s) would like to attend the Alpha Supper (or the course)then let us know in the church office by sending an email to Lesley@emmanuelbicester.org.uk

Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28 v.19 (NIV)
