Christians Together in Southwold & District are hosting an Alpha course starting Wednesday 22 April 7.15pm at St.Margaret’s Church, Reydon (The first evening will include a meal).

The Alpha Course is a 10 week practical introduction to the Christian faith.  It is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun way. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile. Listen, learn, discuss and discover. Ask anything.
