As a followup from our Autumn webinars and recent discussions with members, the CYMI board has approached Alpha Ireland to see if they would run ALPHA online for members.
Many CYMI members were impressed with the ALPHA webinar and have heard of how powerful the experience of the course online can be for young people. Therefore to allow members and youth ministers to get a better understanding of how they could run the ALPHA Course online in their dioceses or organisations, we feel it would be useful to offer the course as an option.
Obviously, there are other benefits to having a CYMI member ALPHA Course... an opportunity to build community and friendship among members and also a chance for members for spiritual nourishment in these challenging times. As the saying goes: "what you don't have, you can't pass on". We all know that our ministry to young people is in our 'overflow', that we should be spiritually full to enable us to pour into our young people and young adults.
To move forward, we need to gauge the interest that there is among members and to assess feasibility, the provisional plan is:
Wednesday mornings at 11:30 am beginning on February 24th and running for approximately 10 weeks with a break during the Easter period. Each session will last 1 hour initially but may extend to 1 hour and 15/20 mins should we need the extra time for discussion, etc. as the course develops.
