Hi, I'm considering doing an alpha course in the parish I grew up in, and I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what it is like? Religion was never part of my upbringing but I've felt a pull for many years now... Around 6 or 7 probably... Sometimes that pull is stronger than others, but its there nonetheless. This past year I have tried to turn away from it and reject it but its still here. Is an alpha course a good place to start? The church I was married in, in the parish I grew up in, has an all ages service this morning that I may go to if I can get up to my mums house in time.
I've helped on a few. They are usually really open and interesting and give plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions without telling you what you have to believe iyswim. I'd go for it - hope you enjoy it and find it valuable for you. Good for making friends too
