Alpha - What is it?

alpha logoAlpha is a series exploring life, faith and meaning. It's a space to explore the big questions, to say what you think and to hear other people's points of view.

Each talk explores an aspect of the Christian faith, then in the small group you get to say exactly what you think.

The aim of the talk is to spark conversation, each week tackling a different question. There is no obligation to say anything, and there’s nothing you can’t say.

Our 2021 Alpha Course will be held on-line via Zoom on Thursday evenings.

We start the 10-weeks course on Thursday 8th April. This introduction evening will be slightly longer, with a talk that explains Alpha followed by a discussion.

It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, open and friendly environment. Why not try it out?

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.

The course is designed primarily for people who don't go to church or who haven't been to church in a long time but are interested in discovering what the Christian faith is really about - find out the truth and dispel the myths and misconceptions!

Over 24 million people have done the Alpha course in over 100 countries ... now you are invited to do it too. RSVP.
