The new roadmap for COVID-19 recovery in Ireland has been released, and while it does give us some sense of where we are going with the autumn upon us, for many challenges remain.  Schools are back with all the hopes and worries that entails for so many. How are you coping with all the stresses and strains of the uncertain times? Maybe now is a good time as the evenings draw in to see if you can make sense of things with us in a safe place using the Alpha Course?

We offer a place of trust and respect for differing views, a place of conversation about the big questions of life, a place to explore the role of faith and find hope through it all. The Alpha course ( has been run millions of times throughout the world, including here in Ireland, and millions have found it a great starting point to find some answers to those big questions. How much more is it needed now! While Alpha suggests a framework based on the Christian perspective, any and all opinions are welcome!

We will  be hosting an on-line version using Zoom for those who prefer to stay isolated due to the prevailing COVID challenges. This has proved very successful and fulfilling for those who have already tried it.

A typical evening starts with a welcome to all, followed by a 25-30 minute video exploring in dynamic, globally orientated fashion the basics of Christian faith, and then we break into small groups on-line for discussion of any issues that arise from the video or anything else that is relevant to you in these times we live in.

The course is free, starts Thursday October 8th at 7.30 PM and is open to adults of all faiths and none. Further info and book a place from Theresa at 087 221 2551 or or The Carraig Centre 021 487 7260. Please register Below).

A link will be sent to you for the Zoom sessions.
