Start! Discovering Christianity in six small-group sessions


Start is a down-to-earth course to help today’s men and women discover the Christian faith.  Start! introduces Christianity through six DVD based interactive, small-group sessions.  The Start! course makes no assumptions about participants’ background or experience or knowledge of Christianity or the church. It really does start from scratch.


Each session lasts about 90 minutes and is based around short, lively DVD programmes with time to chat and space for reflection.


As well as those who want to know more about Christianity, Start! works well with baptism families, wedding contacts, bereaved families, parents of children and teenagers and those who are new to the church.  Above all, taking part in Start! is enjoyable for everyone involved.


There are Six sessions:

  1. Life is for Living
  2. Oh my God!
  3. Jesus who?
  4. What’s gone wrong?
  5. Dying to save us
  6. Into the arms of love.


The Alpha Course - 2013

Alpha is an important part of our church programme and we will be running an 11 week course soon.

The theme will be "Christianity: boring, untrue and irrelevant?"

If you or anyone you know is interested in coming on the course please email: alpha@hmmc.org.uk

Who's it for?

Never been to church? Not sure what you believe? Maybe you gave up on church a long time ago. The course was designed for you or anyone who doesn't go to church regularly.

What's so great about it?

Ever wanted to explore the meaning of life or ask challenging questions about the Christian faith? Maybe you're just curious about this church stuff and want to have a nosy? Alpha doesn't care about your background, it welcomes all those big questions and it's free. Can't say fairer than that right?

How does it work?

It's a course with small groups of about twelve people with a host and helpers. There are usually around eleven sessions, with a day away in the middle. Each session begins with food, snacks, that sort of thing, followed by a short talk looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith and time for discussion.
