17 Year 7 students, six topics and cinema-worthy quantities of popcorn. During the summer term Nicholas Breakspear students gathered together to take part in Alpha. Most students came because they had experienced a taster session on their Step Retreat. A few came because the course was happening instead of the weekly lunch club they usually attend.
The course was a total success with students asking good questions, changing views, sharing personal beliefs and engaging with each other on a deeper spiritual level. Attending allowed pupils to develop on their faith journey. The final session concluded with offering bibles to those that wanted to read more. Eight students took New Testaments for further discovery.
Next term we will run Alpha for Year 9. Fancy helping? You don’t need any previous experience of Alpha, but should be willing to chat about your faith and listen to the students' opinions. Contact Chris if you'd like to find out more.
