Looking for answers? The Alpha course is an opportunity for you to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed environment over ten, thought-provoking weekly sessions. It's low key, friendly and fun and is supported by all the main Christian denominations.
You're not on your own either. Over 2 million people in the UK and 11 million worldwide have found it a worthwhile experience, completing the Alpha course in churches, homes, schools, universities and prisons.
You have an opportunity to attend a free introductory supper and a short talk entitled "Christianity: boring, untrue and irrelevant?". After this, you can decide whether or not you would like to follow the course.
The Alpha Course consists of a series of talks addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith.
Supper: There is a light meal together at the beginning of each session which gives people a chance to get to know each other.
Talk: After each talk we divide into small groups to discuss the topic of the evening, ask questions and express opinions.
Coffee & Small groups: Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
