The Alpha Course

What is Alpha?

alpha-coffee.jpgAlpha is an opportunity for anyone to come and explore the Christian faith in a relaxed environment. The course consists of eight sessions addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith.

Alpha is a place to listen, learn, discuss and discover. It is a place to ask anything. No question is too simple or too hostile. Alpha is relaxed, informal and fun!

One previous Alpha guest expressed it like this: “At Alpha you can ask anything you like and nobody laughs. It is non-threatening and you can be sure that your views will be respected.”

What Happens at Alpha?

Each evening begins with a meal, followed by a short videoed talk. After the talk we split into groups to discuss the evening's topic, to ask questions and to express opinions. There are separate groups for students and those for whom English is not their first language.

Who is it for?

The course is open to anyone who would like to attend, whether you know nothing about Christianity or have been going to church for a while. The next course starts on 25 January 2018 and runs for 8 weeks.alpha-meal.jpg

Some of the questions we will be exploring include:

     - Who is Jesus?

     - Why and how should I read the Bible?

     - Does God heal today?

     - How can I have faith?

If you have questions like these, or are searching for a deeper meaning to life, then why not come along and try out Alpha?

What does it cost?

There is no charge for the Alpha course, although you are free to make a contribution toward the cost of the food if you wish.
