This week we took a look at what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit, delving into the truth the God is Three Persons but One God.
This week Nic looked at probably one of the most important questions we will ever ask ourselves and that is ‘Did Jesus really rise from the dead?' He made the case that Christianity rises and falls on this one question!
This week, on Alpha, Seth asked the question, why did Jesus die? And we spent the morning exploring how in the story of Christianity, forgiveness is not something to earn but a gift to receive.
On week three of Alpha we asked the questions, can I trust the Bible and who was Jesus? Seth showed us that how reliable the Bible is as a historical document and shared some of the claims of Jesus.
On week two of Alpha we tackled the topic of ‘Science and faith’ and watched a talk by Andrew Wilson. Andrew is a Pastor, author and internationally recognised theologian based in Eastbourne, England.
In this talk he speaks about how science is only part of the picture that helps us understand why we are here and how we need to engage with both science and faith in order to achieve a fuller picture of the meaning and purpose of life.
On week one of Alpha Nic spoke to us asking the questions ‘Christianity; is it boring, irrelevant and untrue?’ He shared his own story of coming to faith and also looked at three huge claims that Jesus made in John 14.

In Acts 2, Peter gets up and shares great news with a diverse crowd. It wasn't about things they needed to do, but about an event that had happened. He didn't have good advice about what they should do, he had great news about what had been done. Listen to this third message in our Unexpected series.
