The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner over 10 thought-provoking weekly sessions. It’s low key, friendly and fun.

How does it work?

The Alpha course consists of a series of talks addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith.

Supper: There is usually 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 people are placed in 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.

Who is it for?

Alpha is for everyone, especially:

  • Those wanting to investigate Christianity
  • New Christians
  • Newcomers to the church
  • Those who want to brush up on the basics

How much does it cost?

There is no charge for the Alpha course, although we do invite people to give a small donation to cover the cost of the food.
