The Alpha Course

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is for anyone who wants to investigate Christianity, and also for new Christians and newcomers to the church. It is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in an atmosphere which is relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun. The course consists of 11 sessions looking at topics such as ‘Who is Jesus?’, ‘Why and how do I pray?’, ‘Why and How do I read the Bible?’ Each evening starts with a simple meal, followed by a short and engaging talk. Participants then break into small group discussion groups.

The next Alpha Course will start in January. Sessions will run on a Wednesday evening from 7:00pm till 9:30pm. Please get in touch if you’re interested in joining the course.
