at the Blandford Parish Centre, Blandford Forum DT11 7DN
A no-holds-barred course with the Bishop of Sherborne, Dr Graham Kings.
The first evening will consist of a free meal in the Centre, followed by a talk and discussion.
 “It’s an evening that’s open to everybody in Blandford and the surrounding areas – to meet the bishop and to discuss the meaning of life,” he said.
“The Alpha course is based around two things – food and questions; food because the central act of worship, the Holy Communion, is a meal and questions because they are so important. No question is out of bounds, no question is silly. “I hope that people will come to faith and to new faith, and that they will come asking questions. But God is a God of surprises – anything could and probably will happen!”
