In the future, scientists will be able to prolong life, but will it be worth living?
Without purpose or joy, extended life seems a hollow victory. So how do we live life to the full?
A Life Worth Living, based on St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians, is especially written for those who are just starting out in the Christian life and is an ideal follow-up to the Alpha course.
Children do not arrive with an instruction manual. No role we undertake is more important than parenting. The talks are presented on DVD which are interspersed filmed clips of parents and children talking about their experience of parenting or being parented. There is lots of time alloted to develop relationships and share experiences with other parents in the course.
The Parenting Children Course is for:
any parent/caregiver of children from 0 to 10 years old
those expecting their first child
single parents and step-parents
parents who come as a couple or on their own
Is it time to invest in your family?
While Alpha is designed especially for those wanting to investigate the Christian faith for the first time, it is also great for those new to the faith, or for those who want a refresher on the essentials. Alpha consists of a 10-week series of 15 talks addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith.

The Marriage Course is for any married couple who wants to build strong foundations for a healthy marriage that will last a lifetime.
It's a great opportunity to spend time together as a couple and look at the important issues in your relationship.
Each week you are given the opportunity to enjoy a special meal together and listen to a talk. Then there is plenty of time to discuss the topic as a couple. There is no group work involved at any stage of the course.
Many of us live in a prison of self-absorption. Shackled with pride
and despair, we compare ourselves to others constantly in our frantic,
unending pursuit of perfection. Seated with Christ gets to the root of this behavior and charts a path to freedom.
says that God’s beloved are seated with Christ in the heavens (Eph.
2:6), treasured by Him and given a place at His table. Heather Holleman
unveils what this means for us. It means we walk out on the fight for acceptance. We quit measuring ourselves to others.
Many of us believe this, and yet, somewhere along the way we have chosen comfort over obedience, familiarity over faithfulness. The passion we once felt for the Gospel has ebbed, and we primarily seek out the easy path in life. Discipleship seems hard and hardly worth the trouble. However, this is not the life Jesus intended when He gave His all for us. There's more to following Christ and it's more worthwhile and life-changing than you first thought. In All In, Mark
Batterson issues a call to believers to dethrone their personal desires
and go "all in" for Christ. You may feel afraid to surrender your whole
life to Jesus, but when you do, you'll discover that's when the real
adventure of faith begins.
