Alpha @ LWMC 2010

Posted by admin On October - 30 - 2010

Earlier in August, LWMC joined some 60 churches and 20 other workplace groups in commencing a run of the Alpha Course as part of the God of This City initiative, organised by Alpha Singapore. The run started off with an Introduction Dinner held at Aldersgate MC. Food came courtesy of the LWMC Catering Company (a company that is yet to be formed, but given the array of culinary talent in church, it’s something that should be seriously considered!), and the event was attended by almost 100 people, with approximately 40% of them being guests invited by church members. It was an evening where the bonds and community within LWMC was obvious.

The subsequent 10 weeks of the Alpha Course was no less exciting. LWMC members continued to display the love and commitment to Christ and His Commission.  They turned up faithfully every week to set up (and clean up) the venue and were hospitable hosts to our guests.  In this 10 weeks, guests journeyed in their exploration of the Christian faith, discussing topics such as “Why did Jesus Die”, “Does God Heal Today” and “What about the Church?”

A particular highlight of the Course was The Day Away, where the discussions were focused on the Holy Spirit.  Many were touched by the Holy Spirit.   A number of guests came to accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.  The Day Away was an indication of things to come as a significant percentage of the remaining guests came to Christ in subsequent sessions.

God has reaped a “net-breaking” harvest by LWMC’s obedience to “cast our nets the other side”.  We have personally seen the lives of our guests changed and have been humbled by how God multiplied and magnified the work done by the willing hands of LWMC, resulting in the transformed lives of our guests.

The Alpha Course is a practical introduction to Christianity where guests are encouraged to ask questions and express their views regarding the faith.   Each session typically comprises of a meal, a video talk on a certain aspect of the Christian faith and discussion groups after.   For more information regarding the next run of Alpha at LWMC, please email us at alphaatlwmc@gmail.com.
