By | News | No Comments

2015-01-18-alpha---website-banner

Got questions?  Want to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment?  A series of talks, such as:  ‘Who is Jesus?’, ‘Why and how do I pray?’ “Does God Heal today,” and many others are followed by discussion in small groups where no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.

The Alpha Course runs Wednesday evenings for ten weeks starting with the Intro Night. There is also an option of a weekend away.  You don’t have to come to the whole course.

Next Alpha Course starts Wednesday, September 21 to November 30, with the Alpha Weekend happening on November 4-6, 2016.

If you would like more information or would like to know when the next course starts, email Shandy.

We think our church is amazing, but lets be honest, it can also be terrifying if you don’t know what goes on inside. Here at WECA, we remember what it feels like to walk through our doors for the first time. Not knowing what to expect, what to wear, when to come, where to sit can be some of the most intimidating questions on the planet. We want to make your experience here at church as welcoming and as comfortable as possible.
