The 8-week course to explore the Christian faith

Explore life, meaning and purpose at Alpha

Do you want to explore the Christian faith? An Alpha Course is the perfect place to learn and to find answers to some of the biggest questions about god and our existence.

Each Alpha evening begins with coffee and cake, followed by a video presentation and then time for discussion and questions at the end. Everyone is very welcome!

what is it?

The Alpha Course is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed environment.  During the 8 week course questions are not only allowed, they are actively encouraged. No question is too simple or too difficult!  Topics such as “Who is Jesus?”, “How to read the Bible” and “Why and how to pray” allow participants to start understanding what it means to follow Jesus for themselves.

Who is it for?

The Alpha Course is for anyone who has questions about God, Jesus or the Christian faith.  You can have a church background, be a new Christian or have never been to church before.  If you are wondering what faith is all about Alpha is a great place to start finding out, with others who are also looking for answers.

When is it?

We hope to begin a new course later in the year. Just send us an email to [email protected] and we will notify you as soon as we have dates for the next course.

what happens?

Every session starts with refreshments, giving course participants a chance to get to know each other. We then watch a film produced by the Alpha team, and shot all over the world, with each week's film discussing a specific topic. After the film there is an opportunity for informal discussion and questions. Towards the end of the course there is usually a full day, usually a Saturday, dedicated to sessions about the Holy Spirit.

Anything else?

There is no charge for attending an Alpha course but because we serve light refreshments, we do need you to book a place in advance and notify us of any dietary requirements.
