The Alpha Course
One way to discover what you believe is to bring your questions to the Alpha course. If you would like to find out more about Christianity or explore what you believe, then Alpha will be a great place to start.
Why Alpha? Over a series of 10 interactive weekly sessions, Alpha helps guests explore the meaning of life, revealing that Christianity can be every bit as relevant to life today as it was 2000 years ago. What happens on Alpha? We start with food, followed by a short talk and then small group discussions. Alpha takes place in a relaxed, friendly, non-threatening atmosphere with elements of humour.The whole course is free! Discover what you believe – bring your questions to the Alpha course. If you would like to find out more about Christianity or explore what you believe, then Alpha would be a good place to start.
