I originally came along to Alpha to support my friend who had a lot of questions, as well as to see what Alpha was all about, since I’ve heard so much about it for a number of years.

I am a Christian who grew up in a Christian home, however at the point in my life that I was doing Alpha I was feeling very 'heavy', and was in the process of emotional healing. It felt like each day I was getting heavier and heavier. At the Alpha Day Away I went up for prayer, and whilst the worship was playing I was just crying without control. I then I had prayer and encountered the Holy Spirit. This isn’t my first encounter, but as Christians we need continual encounters with the Holy Spirit, to die to ourselves and know we aren’t in control. After prayer I felt so much 'lighter'. I just had a glimpse of joy and spark brought back into my life, which I had lost for a while.
