As a parish, we have run Alpha Courses many times. But, after Alpha, what’s next? Here is the answer to that question! Alpha Alumni or those who have been part of an Encounter Retreat, like Cursillo or the Life in the Spirit Seminars, or those who complete the Resurrection Life course, are invited to consider becoming part of a “Connect Group.” These mid-sized groups offer an opportunity to again experience some of the best elements of Alpha: eating together, prayer, open sharing, and friendship. Connect Groups are a great way to build relationships, grow closer to Christ and get connected.
Connect Groups meet in a host family's home every two weeks, and they are made up of 20-30 people, including children. Each meeting follows a similar schedule, usually beginning at 6pm and ending at 8:30pm.
Schedule of Events
-Blessing and a potluck meal
-Short testimony or talk
-Small group break-out (3-4 people) to discuss the testimony
-Prayer, songs and intercessory prayer
If you have been part of Alpha or a similar evangelistic, discussion-based seminar or retreat, and would like more information about Connect Groups, please send Chris Spalding a message above.
