As a parish we’re beginning the new year with a new ‘offering’ – Alpha.
For anyone who hasn’t heard of Alpha before, it’s a 10 week ‘course’ exploring the big questions of life and how Christianity addresses them. The first Alpha courses were run by Holy Trinity Brompton – an Anglican church in London – in the late 1970s, but has now been taken up by church communities all around the world, and now not least here, in the arctic! If you want to know more, you can visit the UK Alpha website here, and the Norwegian site is here.
We’ve already seen many very encouraging signs as we’ve been preparing. If you’re in the Finnsnes area, you’re very welcome to join us, each Tuesday from the 13thof January. If you can’t be with us, we’d love to have more people partnering in prayer.
