Alpha is a place where you can ask your questions and say what you think about Christianity. Nothing is out.
3-5pm Sundays in May and June, Holy Cross will be hosting Alpha Youth for anyone in years 6-12.
Holy Cross adults are also welcome to join our friends at Holy Rosary who are hosting an Alpha course at Blackfriars Centre, timed to run at the same time.
A Kids’ Club will be held at the same time, offering fun and fellowship for younger kids of any parents or carers joining alpha courses.
This Easter season Holy Cross and St Margaret’s are engaging in deep discussions on bringing our carbon action project into the lives and homes of the families in our churches and wider community.
Community members are invited to join our carbon action project in the home discussion groups–to learn from each other, hear from guest speakers, and share ideas, actions, inspirations and support.
Topics – with guest speakers – will cover:
Whether you are taking your first tentative steps to reducing emissions, or are already a carbon-neutral household, all are welcome. Our discussion groups will provide a supportive environment to explore meaningful ways to make change, and to ask deeper questions about finding hope and caring for our sacred earth in the fact of climate change.
Contact email@example.com for more information or to register interest.
Bring friends and food to share!
The discussion groups are part of a suite of activities in our two churches. The carbon action project in the home will be a focus during worship services and kids’ church throughout the Easter season, culminating in a joint worship service on Pentecost Sunday, 9.30am 23 May.
We will also be posting information, tips and guides. Keep an eye out for blog posts and check out our Carbon Action Project page for resources.
Our Carbon Action Project in the Home Kids’ Church activities and discussion groups with St Margaret’s have helped our church families take some important steps towards going carbon neutral. From learning about electric bikes to cooking smores in a solar oven (yes, even on a cold autumn morning!) we have learnt a lot and had great fun in the process.
If you missed out, don’t despair. You can have a look at the quick check lists on energy, food and transport on our resources page, to have a think about what changes (big or small) you might be able to make.
In the meantime, be sure to take a look at the presentation given by Rebecca from the Family Footprint Project on reducing food waste to land fill – with lots of great tips on reducing, composting and more…
