There is extremely limited parking near the church. It is best to park in one of the car parks just off the main road in the centre of the village (the D2) and then walk up to the church, following Rue Francois Arago.
(The after-service refreshments will be served at Cave le Carignan, which is on the corner of rue Arago and rue de la Pompe - so you will be coming back down the hill afterwards, anyway, for your mulled wine!)
At the end of the service there will be a retiring collection to enable us to make a thankyou gift to the church of Saint Félix for the use of their premises, and also to support the local Laroque charity 'Fleur de Vie', which helps educate children in Madagascar.

Loving God. Loving People.
Alpha is for anyone who is curious.
Is there more to life?
Is there more to life than this?
Who is Jesus?
What did he say about himself? What evidence is there to support what he said?
Why Did Jesus Die?
The problem? The solution? The result?
How Can I Have Faith?
The Word of God. The work of Jesus. The witness of the Spirit.
Why and How Do I Pray?
What is Christian prayer? Does God always answer prayer?
Over 2 million people in the UK and 11 million worldwide have now attended an Alpha course, an opportunity to explore the meaning of life, running in tens of thousands of churches of all denominations across the world. Originating with the Church of England the course is currently offered in 152 countries by many different Christian denominations.
This year’s Alpha is being held over lunchtime in the smaller dining room of a restaurant in Saint Jean Pla de Corts: “Les Abeilles”. Each fortnightly session will begin with the restaurant’s set lunch menu and then continue with the presentation of that week’s topic, followed by a time for questions and discussion. There is no charge for the Alpha, other than the standard cost of the lunch menu (approx. 13€)
The talks, which are on DVD, are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. The courses at Riverchurch are led by Moray McKay who is an experienced Alpha presenter.
If wish to join us, just let us know and we'll give you more details. Or, if there are people who you would like to invite, feel free to do so. There will be no assumption of any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.

We gather for Sunday celebrations at Église Saint Vincent de Paul, 24 Avenue de Gérone, Perpignan. From time to time we hold services in other villages in the region.
