We began an 8 week Alpha course on Monday evenings in late January in the newly refurbished room at the back of our church building, for adults from Firhouse, Knocklyon and beyond.

Alpha is a series of weekly events that explores some of the basic truths of the Christian faith – “Who is Jesus?”, “Why Did Jesus Die?” and “Does God Heal today?” Alpha is relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun. It runs in 169 countries. Over 20,000 have attended Alpha in Ireland and millions have attended worldwide.

Alpha is suitable for any people who ever wanted to take a little time out to explore the meaning of their life? Or ask questions about the Christian faith? Or who may be just curious about what it’s all about. It is an ideal course for spiritual renewal – to help adults make the transition from faith learned as a child to a vibrant, active, adult Christian faith for today.

The Alpha course was attended by a small number of enthusiastic people from Firhouse parish and beyond. The course concluded just after Easter.
