Spiritual Development

Being a Christian

The word Christian was given to the early followers of Jesus, and this has continued ever since. But what does it actually mean?Being a Christian is not sticking rigidly to rules and regulations, performing rituals, or even just going to church. It’s about a relationship –  a relationship with Jesus Christ. You can read more about being a Christian here on the Church of England website.

The Alpha Course

‘Is there more to life than this?’  ‘Is this it?’ ‘Why am I here?’

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explains the basics of the Christian Life.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who is curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

How does it work?

Each session includes pub food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. At any point if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem. There is no pressure, no follow up and no charge.

The Pilgrim Course 

The Pilgrim course is a major new teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England. We are also offering this course here at Holy Trinity Bosham. The course seeks to create a place where people can explore the Christian faith together and see how it can be lived out each day.

Pilgrim takes a different approach to other Christian programmes. It approaches the great issues of faith not through persuasion, but participation in a pattern of contemplation and discussion with a group of fellow travellers. For more details please contact Canon Martin Lane on 01243 573228. More information can be found on The Pilgrim Course website here.
