What is Alpha?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. Alpha is a 10 week, 1 session a week, course with a Saturday away day (or weekend) in the middle. Each session begins with a meal where you get to know the other people on the course and those leading the group. This is followed by a talk (either live or on DVD), and then a group discussion on the topic for the day.

Listen, learn, discuss and discover. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile, you can ask or say anything. It is supported by all the main Christian denominations.  There is no charge for the Alpha course, though you may be asked to contribute a small amount to the cost of the away day. It's relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun.
