Alpha Testimonies

The best way for me to describe the impact this course has had on me is “more than I expected”.  I didn’t come in with a list of questions…just a curiosity to find out more.  As a relatively new Christian I sometimes struggle to get elements of faith from my head to my heart.  Watching the videos and listening to the people in my group has made me realise that other people have similar obstacles to get around too.  The discussions have been like putting together a jigsaw puzzle that we all have different pieces, and at the end we can all see the bigger picture more clearly.  Obviously there is so much to explore, but this course has given me a guide to find out more in my own time.  The biggest mind shift for me has been understanding that Jesus is looking for a relationship with me, not calling me to “follow a religion”.  This is helping me to get past the fear of sharing the Gospel with people, and not feeling like I’m just giving a sales pitch.  I can’t wait till the next one, because everyone has different questions and perspectives that help to grow our faith.  I would strongly recommend this course to anyone, regardless of where you are in your walk with God.                ~ Byron
