Alpha Course

Alpha Course

Alpha is for everyone, especially:

  • Those wanting to investigate Christianity
  • New Christians
  • Newcomers to the church

The Alpha Course is a series of sessions addressing key issues related to life and to the Christian faith. It is a relaxed environment in which to explore the big questions of life - "Is there a God", "If God is good then why is there so much suffering in the world?", and more.

Each session begins with free food, tea and coffee (a chance to get to know others in the group), followed by a presentation about a particular aspect of Christianity. There is then a time of discussion in small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion and to ask questions. (You won't be put on the spot, so if you prefer to listen that's OK). The group discussion leaders will do their best to answer any queries based on their experience of Christian Faith.
