Over 50 participants complete Alpha Course

PENAMPANG – Over 50 new participants from Penampang have completed the Alpha Course recently.

In its fifth round, the course was organised by the Penampang Evangelisation Pastoral Committee from August to October 2017.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes.  No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation

Lewis Juit presented the certificates to the participants in a simple ceremony at St Michael Parish Hall on Nov 7.

Rose William described the course as very easy to understand, not boring and consistent in its time duration.

“Even though I did not complete the whole programme because I came in at the half-way point through the invitation of a friend, I felt as good as having completed it during the weekend programme,” she said.

Another participant, Callistus Majalang said the programme was interesting and flexible.  He said he did not really experience it in a spiritual way but looked forward to explore it further in the next round.

Agil Bajarai, organising chairman, said the follow-up course will be held early next year for those who have attended the basic course. – Soccom Penampang
