Alpha is for everyone who wants to explore life's big questions. Each evening includes food, a talk about the Christian faith and an opportunity to share your thoughts. Our next course starts on Thursday 2nd February at 7.15pm. There is no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
Over 22 million people worldwide have now attended Alpha 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 and death and their meaning."
The Guardian, London
"What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going, relaxed feel of the proceedings - that, and its astonishing success."
The Times, London
"Many claim Alpha has changed their lives and appear genuinely happier for the experience."
The Alpha course looks at a series of topics, such as ‘Who is Jesus?’, ‘Why and how do I pray?’ and ‘Why and how should I read the Bible?’. After dinner and a short presentation, we divide into small groups for a time of informal discussion.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone, especially:
Those wanting to investigate Christianity
Newcomers to church
Those who want to brush up on the basics
No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
