ALL COURSES ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO COVID-19
The Discipleship Course
Multiply exists to serve local churches by encouraging and equipping disciples who make disciples in all nations. They do this by providing biblical resources and hosting gatherings that prepare followers of Christ to go, baptize people, and teach them to obey everything Jesus commanded – including the call to make disciples.
Every other Saturday at the Church at 8am, starting the 1st of Feb where we will use the Multiply recourse to better understand what being a disciple really means, and to equip us to go out and make disciples of others.

The Prayer Course
An eight week journey through the Lord’s Prayer every Tuesday at 7:30 pm.
“Lord, teach us how to pray”
There is always more to learn about prayer! The prayer course has been written to help us grow and deepen our prayer lives, as individuals and as praying communities. It’s a great resource from the 24/7 prayer team. All the resources are freely available from their website (prayercourse.org), so you can use then on your own, but we are providing a time and place where we can come together as Christians from different churches across the town, to share our thoughts and experiences of prayer. Ipswich in Prayer aims to serve and equip the church in Ipswich to pray for our town and we are pleased to be partnering with All Saints Church to put on this course for anyone who would like to join in.

Got questions? Try Alpha.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes – you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
First there's food. Whether it's a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It's no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food, because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.
Then there's talk. The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
And then there's discussion. Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment
