Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. No pressure. No follow up. No charge. Alpha really is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment.

What others have said

I believe the Alpha course touches lives. I have seen so many people find a personal relationship with God and a quiet strength in their life after doing the course - me included - and it takes a proud man to say he never needs any help. Alpha is a non pressured and fun course, and it shows how Christianity can be relevant and empowering to our lives. Bear Grylls, TV Adventurer
What Alpha offers and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions - life and death and their meaning. The Guardian

What to expect

Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, low-key setting over nine thought-provoking weekly sessions. Each session starts with coffee followed by a short talk, and then there is the opportunity to discuss the talk and ask any questions you may have. The course is also flexible enough should you be unable to commit to every week.


Alpha is usually run twice a year in Spring and Autumn. Sign up here
