The ONLINE ALPHA Course is coming again to EDOD

 

Launch: March 18, 2021

 A recent study shows that google searches for prayer has soared throughout COVID. Google Trends data shows that searches for prayer doubles every 80,000 new Covid cases. There is a deep spiritual hunger.  THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL!

Now more than ever, our churches need onramps for believers and seekers to explore the faith.

One of the most effective ways for our congregations to go deeper in their faith AND for our congregations to invite friends to explore spiritual questions is The Alpha Course. 

 Alpha is an opportunity to refresh and renew our faith looking at key questions about God and the meaning of life. 

 Alpha is also a safe space for friends to invite friends to have conversations about God. 

The Episcopal Diocese of Dallas will be running an online Alpha Course for any parish/individual starting March 18, 2021 on Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. 

We all have questions about faith, life and God. The Online Alpha Course is a great space to bring your questions and invite friends and family to bring theirs. 

“The Alpha Course is an 11- week course that creates a space, online or in person, where people can bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life, and God.” 

What began as a weekly course at the Church of England parish Holy Trinity Brompton in London, has now been done in 169 countries and has been translated into 112 languages. Literally millions of people have come to faith through this course.  

The Alpha Course has brand new engaging videos with diverse settings and voices. 

We held an online Alpha Course this Fall 2020 with 13 EDOD participating parishes and it was a great success. The Diocesan wide course is an opportunity for your parish to try it to see if it is something you might want to run at your parish in the Summer and Fall.
