The Alpha Course
The Alpha Course is open to everyone interested in exploring the meaning of life and discovering the relevance of the Christian faith.
We share a simple meal together at the beginning of each session - which gives us an opportunity to get to know each other - followed by a video talk leading into small group discussions.
People come on the Alpha course for many different reasons; some have never been to church and want to investigate whether God exists, others may have attended church and want to further explore the relevance of the Christian faith to their daily lives. Listen, learn, discuss and discover. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
The course is run over 11 weeks plus a day away. All the sessions are listed below. The course is run at various times throughout the year. Do get in touch if you are interested in finding out more.
