Alpha Course

The Alpha course is an exploration of the meaning of life and relationship with Jesus - whether you're interested in finding out more or brushing up on the basics, this is an opportunity to interact or to just sit back and listen.

What did others think of the last course?
"relaxed and laid back"
"safe to ask questions and I've made a lot of friends"
"no pressure to conform"

The Alpha Course at PBC

The Alpha Course outlines what Christianity is including answering questions like 'who is Jesus', 'who is the Holy Spirit', 'what about pain' and many others.  It offers a brunch meal to start the morning or a meal if held in the evening enabling you to get to know the others on the course.  This is followed by a talk or DVD and opportunities to ask questions and clarify what you've heard in small groups.  

The next Alpha Invitation Supper is being held on Saturday 23rd September 2017 when all are welcome to come and have a taster of what the Alpha Course is all about.  The course itself will run on Thursdays from 7pm-9pm starting on 28th September.

For more information and to book on the course, please contact the PBC Church office by email to office@pemburybaptistchurch.org or by phone to 01892 825590.

"What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions - life and death and their meaning." The Guardian, London

News & Announcements

Harvest Frugal Lunch - Sunday 24th September

All are welcome to attend a Frugal Lunch on Sunday 24th September, taking place after the Harvest morning service at Pembury Baptis Church.  The Harvest service will be very suitable for families, led by Tracy Gregory and entitled 'The Fruitful Gardener' - it will include a short drama amongst other worship. 
The Frugal Lunch will be free but we hope that you will donate the cost that you would have spent on a full roast dinner, to be given to a Harvest cause.  The actual charity will be announced nearer the time.  Please do book yourselves in (note any food intolerance please).
