Curious About Faith? Try Alpha

Alpha is a series that explores the basics of the Christian faith in a welcoming, open and friendly environment.

It’s free and there’s no pressure or follow-up.

Each session is held at the Vicarage in Silsoe where we start with a meal. Following that we look at  different topics on Christianity and have time to chat through any thoughts.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t come every week as you can watch the films at home.

You can say anything you like or nothing at all. Everyone is welcome.

No matter your background or beliefs, you’re invited.

Wednesdays at 7pm, food provided
and finished no later than 9pm

To sign up, or for more details, contact Rev Simon on or 01525 643478
