Message from Paul Bright, Alpha Course Leader
Thank you very much for expressing an interest in coming to the forthcoming Alpha Course, running 26th September, 2018 to Wednesday 5th December, 7.45pm to 9.45pm at All Saints Centre, High Street, Weston, Bath BA1 4BX, it will be great to see you!
I will be leading the course, and I am enthusiastic about it as I believe it really helps people in their lives, whatever stage they are at.
The Taster evening and subsequent weeks will be informal, with cake, tea/coffee, an introduction, then a video followed by a group discussion. It is a safe place to ask whatever questions we might have.
I have detailed below the subjects that will be dealt with each week. There’s no obligation at all and the course is absolutely free. Ten weeks may seem long but our experience has been people find it fly’s by, and really enjoy the evenings getting to know each other and tackling the subjects covered. If you miss a week it is not the end of the world!
I look forward very much to seeing you and if you have any further questions then please do get in touch. You can use this email address to get in touch with me

What people have said having been on the course
‘Despite having a very good job, wonderful husband, step-children, healthy parents and a beautiful home, life was hectic and unfulfilling. Often felt like there was something not quite right, but couldn't articulate what. Feeling of being trapped in the mundane and not being the best version of me.
Alpha has literally turned my life on its axis. Through prayer, I have begun a journey that will hopefully result in me becoming the best version of me and enable me to start to use the gifts I have been given in a more altruistic way. I feel as if I have joined a community of people who actually care about others and go out and demonstrate that’.
‘Thanks again to the team who put on the Alpha course. I found it very rewarding and has made a difference to my life already. I just need to work out a way of getting to church now on a regular basis. I’ll find a way’.
