Alpha
We are planning another Alpha course in the near future and are interested to know of anyone who might be interested. We will either be doing a traditional evening Alpha (7.00 – 9.30pm) with a cooked meal or a Tea-time Alpha on a Wednesday with tea and cakes from 4.00 – 6.00pm. Alpha is a course run over a number of weeks looking at the basics of the Christian faith, either for those for whom this might be all very new or for those returning to church or faith after a time away. You would be welcome to come yourself or to bring a friend or relative with you. There is more information on the OMC Website  https://www.otfordmethodistchurch.org.uk/activities/alpha/. If you might be interested please talk to Derek Baxter, Mike Harris or Nick Rowell, or contact Nick on alpha@omc.org.uk.
