Youth Alpha Course
Youth Alpha Course is an opportunity for students to explore their faith and ask questions about what they believe in a safe space. The course consists of 13 sessions, each including a video that we watch and discuss. Topics include: Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus die? Why and how do I read the Bible? Why and how do we pray? Who is the Holy Spirit? How can I be with the Holy Spirit? How can I make the best of my life? There is also the chance for students to ask their own questions related to these topics. The course includes time for prayer and worship, and, if students have not had the opportunity to enter into a relationship with Jesus, there is a chance to do this.
