The Alpha Course

What is Alpha?

The Alpha Course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian Faith.
It’s relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun.

There is a meal together at the beginning of each session which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other.

Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.

And its supported by all the main Christian denominations

What is involved?

The Alpha course consists of a series of talks looking at topics such as “Who is Jesus?” and “Why and how do I pray?” After each talk we divide into small groups for a time of discussion. The course runs for 10 weekly sessions (evening or daytime) and a day or weekend away.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone, especially:

  1. Those wanting to investigate Christianity
  2. New Christians
  3. Newcomers to the Church
  4. Those who want to brush up on the basics

What will it cost?

There is no charge for the Alpha course, although you may be asked to make a contribution towards food.
