What is the Alpha Course?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non threatening manner over thought provoking weekly sessions. Each session we look at and discuss different topics, such as “Who is Jesus?” and “Why and how do I pray?” We also have a day away together.

What to expect

Our course runs over 10 weeks- you can just try the first one and see what you think.
Everyone’s welcome and there’s no pressure or charge.

Who could you invite to Alpha?

The #1 Reason people come to Alpha is because someone invited them. This is a great opportunity to help your friends and families explore faith. Each session is designed to engage and inspire conversation, explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? 

What happens during an
Alpha Course Session?

At the beginning of each session there is a cooked meal which gives you an opportunity to get to know others on the course. Then a talk is given about that week’s topic. After each talk we divide into small groups for a time of discussion.

Everything’s the same bar we don’t get to eat together
