The Alpha Course, a practical exploration of Christianity, has spread very rapidly around the world from its beginnings in England and has proved to be of great interest to both long-time churchgoers and also to skeptical people who have serious questions about the faith.
The 10-week course is presented in a series of talks on DVD dealing with topics such as “Why Did Jesus Have to Die?”, “How Does God Guide Us?” and “How Can I Be Filled with the Holy Spirit?”
Acton Congregational Church runs one course each year, providing a free buffet dinner to begin each week’s class and an opportunity to discuss each topic in a friendly, un-pressured small group setting. In the middle of each course is a day and a half “weekend away” in nearby Weston, which gives participants a chance to explore some topics in greater depth. More details are provided at free informational dinners that precede each course.
The next Informational Dinner will be held at the church on Monday, September 19, 2011 in Hartman Hall. The next Alpha course will begin the following week, Monday, September 26 in Hartman Hall.

There also are Alpha Course brochures in the information racks in various locations around the church.
