Alpha ministries was birthed in 2020 after years of prayer from our senior pastor and Founder Reverend James Lilley. Pastor James Lilley has been involved in one facet or another in compassion ministry since 1998. Our theme verse for this ministry is Jude 1:20-23 “But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ until eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction, but others save with fear, pulling them out from the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh”.
I am the alpha and the omega, the first and the last, the before all and the end of all. Revelations 22:13
