Welcome to Methlick Parish Church

Join us at Methlick Parish Church

Join us on the Bible Course

Get your New Year off to a cracking start by joining us in January on the Bible Course, an 8-week, online introduction to the world’s best selling book. Compiled by the Bible Society, the course combines video teaching, group discussion, personal reflection and daily readings.

• The Bible Course helps you see how the books of the Bible are part of one big story
• Using a unique storyline, The Bible Course will show you how key events, books and characters fit together
• Video teaching, written guides, diagrams and readings will help you grow in confidence as you read the Bible for yourself
• Acts as a great follow-on resource for those who have done introductory courses like Alpha and Christianity Explored

We’ll be running the Bible Course free of charge, via Zoom on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm, starting on Wednesday, January 19th, 2022. If you would like to join us, please contact Jeannie at jp222@btinternet.com by January 5th 2022.

Try Alpha

What is Alpha?

Alpha is an eleven-week series that explores the basics of the Christian faith in a relaxed and informal environment. Small groups meet, watch a short video and then discuss it. Alpha courses are currently being run all over the world in a wide variety of settings from churches to prisons, schools and in people’s homes. Everyone and anyone is welcome to take part. While no two Alpha courses are the same, probably the most important part of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (honest!). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

What Have Others Said About Alpha?

“ I found the Alpha course reassuring, informative, and sometimes challenging ..but most importantly it felt like a warm hug and a soft blanket from afar (even on a zoom call) and the wonderful people involved and the discussions we had have allowed me to move forward with my life in the knowledge that “I am not alone”.

“Alpha lets you explore ideas and thoughts across a variety of subjects and with the Bible and Faith at the centre the discussions can be wonderfully varied. Getting to know others in the group and learning through them and their perspectives is part of the bonus of Alpha. . I didn’t know what to expect but would be happy to recommend it.” 

“It was lovely to follow the Alpha Course with such a caring group of people. It was really interesting to learn together and share different points of view and interpretations as we went. “

“Alpha was a safe place for me to ask the questions I had and not feel daft for asking them.”

“The best bit about Alpha was making friends”.
