Try Alpha

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of 10 sessions exploring the Christian faith in an open and friendly environment. Each session is based around a different aspect of faith and is designed to encourage open discussion and the opportunity to freely share points of view. Alpha courses are run around the world by many different denominations of the Christian faith.

What is the format of the sessions?

The start of every session is a meal where we get to know each other a bit more. After that there is a talk or video that covers the main topic. Then we break out into small groups for open discussion. Nothing is out of bounds and you are free to just listen or participate as much or as little as you would like.

Who is Alpha for?

The course is aimed at people who do not regularly attend church but is open to everyone who would like to attend. It is intended to be a safe environment for attendees to explore the basics of the Christian faith. If at any point you think the course is not for you that is not a problem, there is no commitment, no pressure and no charge. People come to Alpha courses for all sorts of reasons, they may be exploring if God exists, they may be wondering if there is life after death and some people just would like to know more about Christian beliefs. 

When is Alpha?

We are running a 10 week series of sessions during the day on Wednesdays from 12:30 until 14:30 starting on the 18th April 2018 and repeated on Thursday evenings from 19:45 until 21:45 from the 19th of April. 

Both sessions have the same talk/video content and you are welcome to attend whichever session suits you. We recommend that you attend the same day wherever possible as you will be able to build connections with those that attend, however we recognise that occasionally it is not always possible to attend the same day each week.
