  • Who Is Jesus?
  • Why Did Jesus Die?
  • How Can I Be Sure of My Faith?
  • Why and How Should I Read the Bible?
  • Why and How Do I Pray?
  • How Does God Guide Us?
  • Who Is the Holy Spirit?
  • What Does the Holy Spirit Do?
  • How Can I Be Filled With the Spirit?
  • How Can I Resist Evil?
  • Why and How Should We Tell Others?
  • Does God Heal Today?
  • What About the Church?
  • How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?

Periodically Alpha courses are run both in Huntingdon Methodist and other local churches.  Contact us for further details or look on the Alpha website for details of local courses - http://uk.alpha.org

Christian Academy

Christian Academy is a 2-year long Plumbline Ministries course which looks in some detail at various aspects of the Christian life. Christian Academy is designed for busy Christians - students may enrol for two years of study, complete the course over a longer period of time, or enrol for individual modules. Students studying on our courses come from many varied backgrounds, and from a wide variety of denominations and new churches.

The majority of students study on the full course, attending lectures in Huntingdon. Two modules, or one module and two half modules, are covered each term. Each module has 12 hours of teaching—3 Tuesday evenings and one Saturday. A home assignment is set for each module, and there is a tutor feedback sheet to fill in at the end of the module. Set books are provided as part of the course for some modules, and a recommended book list is also given to students.   For more detail www.plumbline.org.uk/Publisher/Article.aspx?id=15805
