Alpha Course/Alpha Plus Courses

Alpha at Café Connect.                 






Everyone has Questions

Exploring is good. We’re built for it. Explore more about life, faith and meaning with Alpha.


Alpha is a series of interactive sessions which freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Mannofield’s 2020 Alpha Courses start on Monday 13th January 2020, and run on Monday evenings for ten weeks with an ‘away-day’ planned for Saturday 15th February.  Each evening starts at 7pm with a meal together in Café Connect, then each course continues individually with a short DVD and a brief discussion. The sessions look at a different questions around faith and are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They address questions such as “Who is Jesus?”, “How can we have faith?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”

There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously!). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment. Everyone is welcome, and there is no charge.

Starting on 13th January 2020, we are offering 3 courses

  • The Alpha Course
  • The Apprentice Series
  • The Prayer Course

We have offered the Alpha Course for over ten years, and we are keen to welcome new participants and those who may have been once or twice before. If you’ve been more than twice, don’t stop there! The Apprentice Series and Prayer Course will help you to continue your faith journey.

The Apprentice Series

THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL GOD is the first book in the Apprentice Series, which along with two other titles forms “a curriculum for Christlikeness”. The Good and Beautiful God focuses on the ‘character’ of God.  Each chapter uncovers the narratives by which Jesus lived and includes a ‘soul-training’ exercise to help us embed these narratives into our own lives. “This deep and transformative book will help you discover the narratives that Jesus lived by and help you grow in the knowledge of our great and beautiful God”

The Prayer Course

Spend 8 weeks journeying through the Lord’s Prayer with a mixture of video content, discussion and practical prayer activities. The Prayer Course is designed to equip and inspire you. The 2020 course is updated from one we have run previously.


We would be pleased to see you at any of these courses. It would help if you could contact the Church office or email Mail@thompsonaberdeen.com, or call 01224 681384 no later than 8th January 2020, because that will help us to make catering arrangements.
