The Alpha course is an opportunity for everyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner over ten, thought provoking weeks. It's low key, friendly and fun. And it is supported by all the main Christian denominations. You're not on your own either. More than 7 million people world wide have found it a worthwhile experience, completing the Alpha course in churches, homes, school, universities and prisons. So why not join us on a journey of discovery. We run an alpha course each year, starting in September.

What is it?

The Alpha Course consists of a series of talks addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith. There is a light meal together at the beginning of each session which gives people a chance to get to know each other. After each talk we divide into small groups to discuss the topic of the evening, ask questions and express opinions. Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
