Sion Community encourages every parish which partners with us to run either Alpha or Discovering Christ on a recurring basis. Both of these courses introduce participants to the person of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. Alpha is longer and presents broad ideas common to all Christian traditions; Discovering Christ is shorter and is presented by a Catholic priest and a Catholic layman. We can help parishes to run these courses in two ways - by providing training for the parish team which will deliver the course; and by providing team members to assist the running of the retreat day or retreat weekend which are integral to these courses. Contact Us for available dates and a suggested donation appropriate to your circumstances.
