Alpha in Wetherby is coming....
LIFE IS WORTH EXPLORING
The Alpha Course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the meaning of life and the Christian faith. It is a relaxed, non‐threatening course where people can eat, share thoughts and explore the meaning of life over ten thought-provoking weekly sessions. It's low key, friendly and fun, and supported by all the main Christian denominations. Everyone is welcome.
There will be two Alpha in Wetherby courses to choose from during the autumn:
Thursday mornings at WBC Margins Bookshop
Monday Evenings at St James' Church Centre
If you know of any family, friends or neighbours who would be interested in joining the Alpha course please contact Val Dyson (01937 583700 / email@example.com) or
