Autumn Alpha – Starting this Thurs! – Join us this Thursday (21st Sept), from 7:45 to 9pm, in Donabate Portrane Community Centre, for tea/coffee, nibbles, videos and chats about Faith! We’re starting this Thurs and running for a series of weeks. As always our invitation to you is to come and see!
The Alpha Course is a series of videos and chats where we discuss faith in a relaxed atmosphere, something we don’t often get to do. Alpha is for everyone whether you’re committed to a faith tradition, or have never thought about faith before! If you have any curiosity it’s a great community to join and discuss some of life’s big questions. We also have Ukrainian subtitles available.
If you’ve any questions or would like to register your interest, just pop us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
