ALPHA - Wednesdays 7pm in Vista


What is Alpha & Why should I care? 

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No pressure. No follow up. No charge. Alpha runs in churches, coffee bars, shops and homes all over the world. Typically, Alpha has about eleven sessions and includes food, a short video presentation and time at the end where you can share your thoughts. The Alpha Course is open to anyone – those who currently have a faith connection or those who are curious about exploring Christianity but are not yet ready to commit to church. 


St. John Vianney will be running the Alpha course eleven consecutive Wednesday evenings beginning September 6 and running through November 15. The sessions will be held in Mullen Commons (behind the church) and will begin with a free dinner at 7 pm. The sessions should last until 9 pm. Please feel free to join us for any or all of the sessions. Sign-ups will be taken at the back of the church beginning Sunday August 13th and each weekend thereafter until Sunday, August 27th. Click here SignUpGenius to sign up.


And if you’re not sure about signing up, but find your curiosity is piqued, please drop in any Wednesday evening.
