Father Christopher Jamison, Director of the National Office for Vocation of England and Wales and former Abbot of Worth Abbey recently ran Alpha at St Mary Moorfield’s parish in the heart of the City of London.
Michael Roche (Alpha-Catholic Context UK) interviewed Father Christopher on his experience of running the course. In the short interview he discusses some of the discoveries he made about evangelisation in contemporary culture and the important role the Catholic Church has to play in helping people explore life’s big questions. Father Christopher says of Alpha:
'I discovered that if I had been designing this from scratch myself I would have had more teaching and less space for discussion…and this would have been a mistake. Alpha has learnt how to give bite-size mouthfuls of teaching with a lot of opportunity to chew it over in the groups.
The thing that touched me most was how very grateful the guests were for this forum to be provided. One of the things that Alpha has helped me to do is to discover that preaching the gospel to those who’ve never heard it is indeed a joy!'
