Alpha Online

May 19, 2020

We propose to run an Alpha online course starting on Monday 1 June at 7.30pm. Although traditionally the Alpha course was always in person and followed a meal, the lockdown has meant the adapted online course has arrived. This will follow the rest of the usual format with a short video followed by discussion, but the latter will be by way of zoom. It will be very informal and easy going. The video introduces the topic, and the discussion is not aimed at answering the questions people raise, but to allow exploration and discussion in an open atmosphere. We need d though to access people who will not hear about it unless they connect with one of the church social media feeds or get church circulations. It will be in next week’s Village Hug. Could you please tell people you know about it and extend the invitation. You can either just tell them about it, or you can copy and paste the text into an email, whatever is easiest for the recipient to access! There is a taster video they can watch in the link – If they know Robin MacLellan, Bert Cooke, Mairi Stewart or Geoff Burns and want to know more about it, they can always call us to ask. If you would like to, please contact Geoff at
