John Chapter 20 : 1 On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb.


 

Radio Veritas Broadcasts Alpha Series

Radio Veritas to broadcast the Alpha talks during the FM transmission period in March. 

Transmission Schedule

6th March 2005 - 3rd April 2005

18:00 - 19:00

A repeat broadcast will be done on the same day in the morning from 10-00 to 11-00

A potential  50 000 listeners

The MNET Broadcast footprint - one can receive it on the DSTV Audio Bouquet channel 71.
Literally thousands could listen in and people could  come to know about Jesus through this medium.  Pray that more Parishes will be encouraged to run an Alpha Course because of this.

 May the Lord  through the power of The Holy Spirit, stir up the hearts of man "in love " to proclaim the Gospel through this wonderful Tool of Evangelisation

 "For the disciple of Christ to evangelise is an obligation of love" Pope John Paul II


                                                    TRANSMISSION SCHEDULE

A repeat broadcast will be done on the same day in the morning from 10-00 to 11-00

Sun 6 March
Talk 1


Christianity: Boring, Untrue, Irrelevant? (36mins)
This talk is normally given at an Introductory Supper (at the beginning of the course) or Celebration Supper (at the end of the course). It is a 'come and see' type of talk and is mainly based on Nicky Gumbel's own journey to finding that Christianity was not boring, untrue or irrelevant! It presents Alpha at the end of the talk as one of the ways a person could go and find out more.

Mon 7 March
Talk 2

Who is Jesus? (41 mins)
Very much a factual historical talk - setting the person of Jesus in the context of key historical figures and events

Wed 9 March
Talk 3

Why Did Jesus Die? (43 mins)
Self explanatory'

Fri 11 March
Talk 4

How Can I Be Sure of My Faith? (42 mins)
This talk does not assume that everyone is a Christian - it more approaches the topic from the angle of 'If I were a Christian - how could I be sure of that?'

Mon 14 March
Talk 5

Why and How Should I Read the Bible? (42 mins)
Quite a practical talk and does not necessarily result in a everyone reading it in the small group that follows

Wed 16 March
Talk 6

Why and How Do I Pray? (45 mins)
Similar lines to talk 5 and the small group may choose to try praying a bit later on

Fri 18 March
Talk 7

How Does God Guide Us? (41 mins)
Appeals to everyone and talks about making life's decisions as a Christian

Sun 20 March - Holy Spirit Day
Talk 8

Who is the Holy Spirit? (39 mins)

Talk 9

What Does the Holy Spirit Do? (40 mins)

Mon 21 March
Talk 10

How Can I Be Filled With The Holy Spirit? (51 mins)
All the above talks link to one another in that order. We may have to look at the end of Talk 10 and see what happens there. On a 'live' Alpha Day or Weekend, this talk would flow into a time of ministry and of asking the Holy Spirit to come, but this is probably not appropriate for this programme

Wed 23 March
Talk 11

How Can I Resist Evil? (44 mins)
This talk comes in here because usually after the Alpha Weekend, where many people have given their lives to Christ, they experience a 'low' and this talk goes some way to explaining that low and how the enemy will try to attack us, certainly when we first become a Christian

Fri 25 March
Talk 12

Why and How Should We Tell Others? (42 mins)
Looking at the ways in which we may share our faith

Sunday 27 March (Easter Sunday)
Talk 13

Does God Heal Today? (43 mins)
Looking at how God does heal today and in the small groups, people may begin to pray for healing for each other. Normally in a leaders prayer meeting prior to this talk, leaders will pray for words of knowledge and pictures that apply to the guests. These words are normally given out after the talk and then guests are invited to respond to the word in the small group if relevant. The group can then pray for that person and it can be a tremendously encouraging time for guests over the next couple of weeks, if the condition improves, etc

Mon 28 March (Easter Monday)
Talk 14

What About the Church?
Looking at why we go to church, the meaning of fellowship, accountability and relationship building within the Christian context

Wed 30 March
Talk 15

How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life? (45 mins)
This talk follows the Holy Spirit talks on a weekend and considers the areas of our life that we would like to see change or that we want more guidance on, having come to faith

Fri 01 April
Talk 1

Christianity: Boring, Untrue, Irrelevant? (36mins)
This talk is normally given at an Introductory Supper (at the beginning of the course) or Celebrateion Supper (at the end of the course). It is a 'come and see' type of talk and is mainly based on Nicky Gumbel's own journey to finding that Christianity was not boring, untrue or irrelevant! It presents Alpha at the end of the talk as one of the ways a person could go and find out more.

THE END!
