Starting October 27, 2020

Time: Tuesdays 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. through mid-December

You can register using this Alpha registration form.

We are excited to be offering an on-line weekly Alpha Course for the students at Algonquin College, starting Tuesday, October 27th and ending mid-December. Because we cannot offer this course (meal included) at the college, we are continuing our partnership with Christian Campus Ministries (Chaplain Yuriy Derkach) in an effort to share the Gospel with students.

As some of you know, we have been doing Alpha at Algonquin since September 2017 and hundreds of students have heard the Gospel. Yuriy, the Chaplain, has followed up with many of these students and some have joined Bible Studies at the college and have now gone out into the world with a new-found faith.

As a Church, we believe we need to continue our investment in this ministry. Alpha Canada has been encouraging this kind of engagement since the pandemic, and we are delighted that we have the resources to launch this.

Even though the target group for this Alpha Course is students, we are encouraging any of you from the Barrhaven Church to join us each week. All you have to do is send your request to Ann Hardman, our Administrative Assistant at or call the office at (613) 440-7555 to leave a message, and Ann will send you the zoom link each week to join. Please note that Ann is not in the office every day right now. If you call, please leave a message and she will get back to you when she is able. Email is preferable as it is checked each business day and you would get a more timely response.

Following the video part of Alpha, small break out groups will be created so that you can be a part of a discussion and prayer group. This is an exciting time for us to “be the Church” as we are reminded that we are all “Called to Mission.” Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please contact Andra Bursey at or phone at (613) 203-8709. You can also contact Major Jim at or by phone at (613)293-2594. We look forward to seeing you there!
