“What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going, relaxed feel of the proceedings – that, and its astonishing success.”

The Times, London

Why Alpha?

The Alpha course, is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It’s relaxed, low key, friendly and fun. Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile. And it’s supported by all the main Christian denominations.

What’s involved?

The Alpha course looks at a series of topics. First we share a meal, then after a short presentation we divide into small groups for a time of informal discussion.

You don’t have to come to the whole course – just pop along for the first night/ morning and see what you think.

Week 2 Why did Jesus die?
Week 3 How can we have faith?
