The Alpha Course

Generation after generation this relentless search for purpose and meaning in life has plagued humanity.  What am I here for?  Who can I place my faith in?  Where can I discover a sense of purpose for my life?

If that’s you, the Alpha course is a great place to start.   Whether you’re a seeker or a sceptic, the Alpha Course provides a safe and relaxed environment where you can come and explore these questions and many more.  Why not take this opportunity to come along and enjoy some tasty dessert, listen to a short talk, and engage in a discussion about life, and faith, and the person of Jesus Christ.

Alpha will begin with the Launch Party, which will be 7:15pm on Thursday the 25th July, in the Fellowship Centre at the church.  Come to the Launch night and sign up to complete the rest of the course over the next seven Thursday nights.

Come by yourself, or invite someone to come with you as you search out the answer to these questions.  Anyone is welcome, every question is welcome, contact us to sign yourself up.

Alpha Launch Dinner

“I am an historian, I am not a believer, but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is irrevocably the very centre of history. Jesus Christ is easily the most dominant figure in all history.” – H.G. Wells

Camberwell Baptist is hosting an Alpha Launch Dinner.   Come along and make the most of the opportunity to explore life, faith, and the person of Jesus Christ in a relaxed and open environment.  Whether you’re a seeker or a sceptic, come along and enjoy dinner, a short talk, discussion, and the opportunity to ask plenty of questions about history’s most influential figure.

This is a free event open to you, your family, friends and work colleagues, so feel free to share the invite around and bring someone along with you.  Come along for the night, and sign up to continue the course over the following weeks.

The Launch Dinner will be starting 7:15pm, Thursday 25th July at Camberwell Baptist Church, 460 Riversdale Road, Hawthorn East (enter via Wills St Hall).

Pentecost – Fresh Wind, Fresh Power

“Very truly I tell you, it is for your good I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” (John 16:7)

At the conclusion of his ministry Jesus makes this promise to his disciples, but more than a concession or consolation, the arrival of the Spirit gave them access to the presence and power of Jesus without the limitations of the flesh.  The Spirit came to be with his disciples, to dwell within, and this becomes manifest in our lives in some incredible, supernatural, inexplicable ways.

As followers of Jesus we believe this promise is not just for the early disciples, but for us, we have the Spirit’s presence within, have been given access to his power, to inspire and equip us to know, and become more like Jesus, so we can serve him in the world.

Join us from Pentecost on June 9th as we open our hearts and lives, and allow the Spirit room to breathe afresh, who knows, God might even do something unexpected, even supernatural in our time, in our church, in our lives.
