Evangelism is an important aspect of the work of the Mission Council. Initiatives taking place around the Diocese include:
Alpha has been running for well over 20 years and has spread around the globe having been inspired by Nicky Gumbel of Holy Trinity, Brompton.
Around a central meal, the Alpha course explores the basics of Christianity by means of a short presentation followed by small group discussions. Towards the end of the course, participants are invited to gather for a day or even a weekend to reflect and build on what they have learnt.
