    Chapel Hill UC has purchased the “Life Worth Living” resources. I’ve used them with a group which included new Christians who’d just completed Alpha, and they found the materials and the discussion which followed (during which more mature Christians in the group were able to share their experience) both helpful and encouraging.

    Hi, my name is Chris Pettigrove. I am looking for an Alpha course for a friend of mine who lives in Townsville. Do any of the Uniting Churches run them there? He is not a believer (yet) but has many questions and is open to God working in his life. It would be a blessing if you could let me know of any running. Blessings, Chris
