What is Alpha?

Exploring is good. We’re built for it! Alpha is a perfect opportunity to explore the meaning of life and ask questions about faith in a relaxed, fun and friendly environment. It’s an eleven week course and each session looks at a different question around the Christian faith and is designed to facilitate conversation around the subject. 

 
 
 
If you’re looking for something different and are at all curious about the Christian faith, then I would highly recommend the Alpha course.

How does it work?

We start the evening with light refreshments and a chance to catch up, followed by a short talk or video and then we finish the evening off with discussion. Each week follows the same pattern, so you always know what to expect. Towards the end of the course there is an opportunity to attend an optional Alpha weekend away. Why not try coming along for the first week? If you find at any point Alpha isn't for you, that’s fine! There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
