The unexamined life is not worth living
— Socrates

What is Alpha?

24 million people around the world have now done the Alpha Course, and we love it!  It’s an opportunity to ask all your questions and explore Christianity’s answers in a friendly and relaxed environment.

  • "I met some great people.”

  • "Nothing was out of bounds; I could ask any question and it was great fun!"

  • "I was a Christian, but disconnected and didn't go to church regularly. I now feel happy and renovated in God's plan for my life."

  • "It's amazing to know that God loves me; I now have hope."

  • "Alpha gave me the time and space to reflect about life."

How does it work?

Alpha is a 10-week course, with evening beginning with food, followed by a talk looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith, and time for discussion in small groups.

We’re very conscious that different people are at different stages in their search for answers.  If you think that Alpha sounds a step beyond where you’re at, come instead to one of our Big Questions evenings.

How much is it?

There's no charge, although you will be offered the opportunity to contribute towards the food costs.
