One woman saw our Alpha course advertised on a poster and became a guest because she wanted answers to questions. Here she tells something of her story ...
What were your first impressions of Alpha?
It was very friendly and welcoming. The talk was easy to understand and clear, the meal was lovely, and I was pleased to find other people there that I could relate to.
What was the course like?
I enjoyed the talks and the discussion groups. I felt safe – I could ask anything I liked, I wasn’t forced into anything, and I could just take things at my own speed. It was very informative - I got the guidance I was looking for. And at one point in the course when I got very upset about some issues, people really cared for me and helped me to find God.
What difference has it made to you?
I have become a Christian and feel a great sense of belonging to God. I feel clearer about parts of my life. I have become calmer and happier. I am trying to live my life in a better way. I’m now really interested in reading the Bible and going to church! I feel different. I feel excited. It’s the same me but I’ve started a new life!
