For our new Family Life Class, aimed at adults of a younger age and their families, we are launching a new course, Alpha for Families. This is the well-known Alpha Course designed to encourage family conversations with your spouse or children about some of the ‘big’ questions of faith.
Every Sunday, we will watch a 15-20 minute video about a big question (e.g. “How do I have faith?” or “Does God heal today?”). You can watch alone or with your spouse, kids or friends! There’ll be a few ‘pauses’ in the message for you to think about what you believe and discuss it with whomever you’re watching.
For younger children, you will find a conversation starter guide in the email and on the website. So, after you watch the teaching, you can start having deeper faith conversations with your younger kids who might not sit through the video. The videos will stay on St. Martin’s Facebook page and YouTube channel so you can watch when it is convenient. We hope that this will help you think through your faith more deeply and work out why you believe what you believe, as well as help your family grow together in faith.
