Penrith Methodist Church

Introducing people to Jesus



After a brilliant 16-20's Alpha in the autumn we are running an 'all age' Alpha starting on September 28th in the Sandgate Room at 7.30pm. Food, film, discussion.

'I loved Alpha, and I'm an atheist!'

It's like a night out with friends'

Do you ever question your faith? Can it all really be true? What is the evidence? Wasn't Jesus just an amazing teacher- why do Christians have to think that he was God? If God is a God of love, why is the world in such a mess? Why do terrible things happen? 
The Alpha Course is a chance to ask these questions and many more. We try to get back to the basics of what the Christian faith is all about, and if indeed it is true and not just wishful thinking. 
27 million people world wide and in every continent have done Alpha!
Come and give it a try.
Even better, come along and bring a friend- moral support for you both!
Great meal to start with then a half hour video talk on the big screen, then discussion.You can say as much or as little as you want in the discussion.
Starts 7.30 finishes 9.30, but you can stay on and chat some more or head to the pub where the discussion can continue.
We look forward to seeing you.

'What Alpha offers, and what is attracting tens of thousand of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions- life and death and their meaning' The Guardian.

'What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy going, relaxed feel of the proceedings - that and its astonishing success' The Times

'If you want a no-holds-barred, open and honest discussion, you can bring all the questions and things that annoy you about anything to do with Christianity or religion to Alpha. You ask it, listen to what has got to be said and then make a decision. If you never ask the questions you'll never get any answers, and if you never give it a go you'll never know whether it was right or wrong, good or bad.' Scott.
