The Alpha Course

As a benefice we run a number of Alpha courses each year; details of the next course can be found at the bottom of the page. 

What is Alpha?

“Alpha is an easy way to explore the basics of Christian faith in a friendly and open environment.”
“Alpha is an opportunity to explore life, faith and meaning.”

Who is Alpha for?

"Alpha is for anyone who’s curious.  The sessions are designed to encourage conversation and questions.”

How does it work?

Alpha runs over a number of weekly sessions, often with an away day towards the end.  Each session includes food and an opportunity to meet and talk, a short film and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts and ask questions.  At any point if you decide Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem.  There is no pressure, no follow-up and no charge.
