Elmwood’s latest Alpha Course finished last Tuesday amid many rounds of thanks for the fabulous meals provided by our chefs.

By the end of the course the guests and team alike had formed some good friendships, and so the final evening’s discussion around the topic, ‘How does God Guide?’ was as lively as ever.

We were unable to hold an Alpha Day Away which focuses on the Holy Spirit, so we tried out a new scheme. We held two midweek evening events; a regular programme on the Tuesday, with a more reflective evening on the following Thursday. It worked really well.

Our guests’ response to the post Alpha questionnaire was positive all round and every guest has indicated that they would be interested in a follow-up Beta course.

Thanks to everyone for their hard work and to you all for your prayers.
