Alpha is an introductory course in the basics of the Christian faith. It answers all those embarrassing, probing questions which non-believers, newbelievers, and long-time believers have, but are afraid to ask. The course is led by lay persons, not pastors. Because Alpha is not teaching doctrine related to any particular Christian denomination, Christ Church and Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church make this class a joint endeavor. All classes are 10 weeks, plus a weekend retreat. Fall classes are at Corpus Christi on Sumneytown Pike. Winter-Spring classes are at Christ Church.
