Parishes can take advantage of online training next month to help the missionary challenge of Catholic evangelisation.

The team at 'Alpha - Catholic Context UK' has developed a package to help set up an Alpha Online course this Autumn.

Mike Roche, Alpha UK Catholic Context Development Manager, said: "We have put this training together to help parishes run Alpha Online so that they can be fully equipped to continue the Church's mission of evangelisation even in the midst of the current pandemic.

"We know that many parishes have wanted to do more with evangelisation during the pandemic but haven't necessarily always had the tools available. So, these sessions are designed especially for them."

Mike and Jo de Paula from the Alpha team will host three one-hour sessions next month.

  • Thursday 3rd September 7.30pm - 'Alpha Online 101'. Register here
  • Thursday 10th September 7.30pm - 'How to host Alpha Online Small Groups'. Register here
  • Thursday 17th September 7.30pm - 'Prayer on Alpha Online'. Register here

A further part of the training will be to attend one of the 'Come and See' Tuesdays and the 'Come and See' Alpha Day where the team from Alpha UK will model what Alpha sessions look like online.
