While Alpha is designed especially for those wanting to investigate the Christian faith for the first time, it is also great for those new to the faith, or for those who want a refresher on the essentials.

Children do not arrive with an instruction manual. No role we undertake is more important than parenting. The talks are presented on DVD which are interspersed filmed clips of parents and children talking about their experience of parenting or being parented. There is lots of time alloted to develop relationships and share experiences with other parents in the course.
The Parenting Children Course is for:
any parent/caregiver of children from 0 to 10 years old
those expecting their first child
single parents and step-parents
parents who come as a couple or on their own
Is it time to invest in your family?

This is a mens group that meet every Friday morning at Hope House. It is fellowship followed by Bible Study. We take a chapter or two each week and process it. (We usually choose a book and work through it from start to finish.) This is followed by accountability time. This is a time to process how we are doing in our personal lives. Victories and challenges are shared and as a group of men we encourage and keep one another accountable in our own journeys.
