Seeking STAR Course Leaders

The Rector is looking for several people interested in putting on a STAR course, which is a series of talks and active discussions for people who want to explore the Christian faith and make their own decisions.  In particular, it is an outreach to:

  • People interested in investigating Christianity
  • Newcomers to the Church
  • New Christians
  • Couples preparing for marriage
  • Those who want to brush up on the basics

The course explores the “Basic Questions”:

  • What is the point of life?
  • What happens when we die?
  • What relevance does Jesus have for our lives today?
  • How do we deal with guilt?

The acronym stands for

Sharing – we begin with a shared meal and we continue sharing points of view and experiences. There is plenty of fun and laughter – it is great opportunity to get to know each other and make new friends.

Talks in which the Christian faith is clearly explained. Star is devised and run by lay people, but each talk has been “reviewed’” by clergy

Active discussion after each talk. No question is too simple or too hostile. Everyone’s point of view is respected.

Reflection. The talks are spread over 9 weeks, everyone has time to think. There is no pressure on people to come to more than one talk: the emphasis is on people making their own minds up about the Christian faith.

To run a course we need leaders and helpers, roughly 20-30% of the people (e.g. 2 for every 10) in the course. They must commit to the whole course, to a training session, and to meeting for prayer before each evening. Being a leader or helper is a tremendous growth experience for all who participate.

Please contact the Rector by the first Sunday in September if you are interested.

DATE CORRECTED – Church Picnic, Single Service, Sunday August 21, 2016

On Sunday, August 21, 2016, we will have a Church Picnic following a single service that morning, which will be at 10 AM. The food will be potluck, so please bring something (but still come to the picnic even if you can’t bring something). You can sign up for what you will bring in the parish hall, or by sending an email to info@StAlbansACC.org. We look forward to seeing you there. Everyone’s invited, not just parishioners. Bring a friend! Folks from the local community are welcome and invited too.

We don’t know if you’ll find any Pokemon at the picnic, but you will find the Holy Spirit!

John the webmaster messed up by previously announcing that the picnic would be on August 28. It’s on August 21. He apologizes for getting the date wrong.
