LIFE IS WORTH EXPLORING

WHAT IS ALPHA?

The Alpha course is open to everyone interested in discovering what Christianity is about. It’s a place where people can come and relax, eat, share thoughts and explore the meaning of life.

HOW ALPHA WORKS

The Alpha Course usually lasts for ten weeks, with a day or weekend away in the middle. Each session begins with a meal or refreshments, then a short talk looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion, when guests can ask questions and contribute their opinions. No-one is obliged to speak! The emphasis is on exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

WHO IS ALPHA FOR?

The Alpha Course is designed primarily for people who aren’t churchgoers and is open to anyone who would like to attend.

Guests come on the Alpha Course for many different reasons; some want to investigate whether God exists and some have questions they’d like to discuss. Many guests have never been to church and others may have attended church but feel they have never had a personal understanding of the Christian faith.

WHEN DOES IT TAKE PLACE?

We are hoping to run an Alpha Course Autumn 2017, dates to be confirmed, starting with a meal and introductory talk – everyone welcome!

Then come along to the 10-week evening Alpha course (7.00 pm to 9.30 pm approx),
