Alpha

You’re Invited!
Join us at Hillside Church of Marin for an introduction to the Alpha Course this Fall. Dinner will be served at 6:30pm followed by the talk “Christianity: Boring, Untrue and Irrelevant?” If you enjoy the introductory night, then come back for the rest!

What Is Alpha?
The Alpha Course is a ten week experience, where people from all backgrounds come together in a welcoming environment to explore what relevance Jesus has for their lives today. It is a practical exploration of Jesus and Christianity centered around a meal, a talk and a small group discussion.

Everyone’s Invited!
People come to Alpha for different reasons, from different backgrounds, and with different opinions. Those differences add to the conversation and often lead to greater understanding.

Ask the Big Questions.
Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile and all viewpoints are respected. Is there a God? Why am I here? Who is Jesus? What about other religions? Alpha tackles these and other questions each week. Chances are somebody else is wondering the same thing.

Give it a Try!
The first night isn’t a commitment. It is simply a chance to see if Alpha might be right for you. Bring a friend and let us know you’re coming. If you like what you hear and want to return for the rest of the course, we’d love to have you.


 


 

Fall 2017 Dates
The Alpha Course @ Hillside will meet on eleven consecutive Tuesdays this Spring, beginning Tuesday, September 12th. Each evening will start with a delicious, casual meal at 6:30 pm; followed by a thought provoking talk and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss relevant issues in a smaller group.

The Alpha Day Away
In addition to the weekly sessions the course includes an optional but highly recommended day away. The day away is the highlight of the course for many, offering an opportunity to get away, learn, relax and have fun. Further details will be discussed during the course.

What Does it Cost?
There is no charge for the course or materials, only the cost of the weekly meals and the day away. There is a recommended donation of $5 for each meal. If the cost of the meals is prohibitive please let us know.
