Alpha Course

What on earth?

Socrates famously said, 'An unexamined life is not worth living.' Sometimes it's easier not to ask questions, but on the Alpha Course we think life is worth exploring. The course is fun, relaxed and totally non-pressured. That's probably why over 18 million people around the world have done it!

Who's it for?

Never been to church? Not sure what you believe? Maybe you gave up on church a long time ago? The course was designed for anyone who doesn't go to church regularly.

What's so great about it?

Ever wanted to ask to explore the meaning of life or ask challenging questions about the Christian faith? Maybe you're just curious about this church stuff and want to have a nosy? Alpha doesn't care about your background, it welcomes all those big questions and it's free. Can't say fairer than that, right?

How does it work?

It's a course with small groups of about 12 people with a host(s) and helper(s). There are usually around ten sessions, with a day or a weekend away in the middle. Each session begins with food, snacks, that sort of thing, followed by a short talk looking at different aspects of the Christian faith and time for discussion.
