Don’t believe in God? Given up on church? Want to explore faith? Just curious?
Alpha is a multi-week course that creates a space where people come and discuss life big questions. Whether you’re new to Christianity, just want to brush up on the basics, or are finding out what Christianity is all about for the first time, try Alpha.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
How does it work?
Alpha is ten sessions with one additional Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Each session includes an informal supper and a short DVD presentation. There is always a discussion about topics raised in the video at the end, where you can share your thoughts and questions if you wish, or simply listen. At any point along the course, if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem. There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.

If you have more questions about the Alpha Course, or indeed the Christian faith, why not come along to any one of our Sunday Services and speak with Canon John at St Peter and St Paul’s Church or Reverend Sheila at St Mark’s Church.
