What is Alpha?

Over 27 million people worldwide have now attended an Alpha course, an opportunity to explore the meaning of life, running in tens of thousands of churches of all denominations across the world.

"What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions: life, death and their meaning"

The Guardian

What is Alpha?

Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. Typically Alpha has ten sessions and includes food, a short talk about the Christian faith, followed by discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.

What’s involved?

The morning session runs from 9.45am with breakfast and a free creche for those with little ones.

The evening session starts at 7pm, with dinner until 7.30pm. We’re always finished by 9pm.

There is also a weekend away mid-way through Alpha.

You don’t have to come to the whole thing – just pop along for the first morning/night and see what you think.

What are the topics?

  • Week 1 - Is there more to life then this?
  • Week 2 - Who is Jesus?
  • Week 3 - Why did Jesus die?
  • Week 4 - How can I have faith?
  • Week 5 - Why and how do I pray?
  • Week 6 - Why and how should I read the bible?
  • Week 7 - How can I resist evil?
  • Week 8 - Does God heal today?
  • Week 9 - Why and how should I tell others and what about the church?

What will it cost?

The course is absolutely free. If you'd like to, you can make a small voluntary contribution towards dinner on the evening.

Okay, I'm interested… what next?
