Alpha Courses

What is Alpha?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith.  It’s relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun.

There is a meal together at the beginning of each session, which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other.  This is followed by a talk and then a chance to discuss “questions of life” in small groups.

Listen, learn, discuss and discover.  And ask anything.  Alpha is a place where no question it too simple or too hostile.

And it is supported by all the main Christian denominations.

We also run courses for those who have previously completed an Alpha course.  If you’d like to know more about these please contact our office (01827 62612).

What is involved?

The Alpha course consists of a series of talks looking at topics such as “who is Jesus?” And “Why and how do I pray?”  After the talks we divide into small groups for discussion.  For an evening Alpha course, each evening runs from 7.30 pm to 9.45 pm.  However, we also run Alpha during the daytime for those who can’t make the evenings.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone, especially:

  • Those wanting to investigate Christianity
  • New Christians
  • Newcomers to the church
  • Those who want to brush up on the basics

What will it cost?

There is no charge for the Alpha course.

When is the next course?

Our next course is planned for later this year, with an Introductory Supper.  If you are interested in coming, please contact us and we send you more details.  Included as part of the course, is an optional weekend or day away.  If you would like more details please contact our office (01827 62612) or use our Contact Us page.

We also run Link courses for those who have previously completed an Alpha course.  Our next one begins after Christmas.  If you’d like to know exactly when you can view our Events page.
