Alpha

What Is It?

Alpha is a chance to explore and question the meaning of life. Over a series of ten sessions, you'll find out about the basics of the Christian faith. Each session involves a main talk and some time to say what you think. It’s fun, relaxed and free, and you can ask anything you like - that's why 24 million people worldwide have already tried Alpha.

You don't have to come for the whole term - just pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure, no follow up and no charge.

Who's it for?

Alpha is for everyone; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don't assume any background knowledge of, or belief in, Christianity and everyone is welcome.
