JOIN OUR ONLINE ALPHA COURSE

Why not give Alpha a try from the comfort of your own home, starting Spring 2021 - you can join in via your laptop, tablet or phone.  Is there a better time to ask some of the big questions?  

NEXT ALPHA COURSE BEGINS WED 27th January 8-9pm

 

hello everyone

What is Alpha?

Over 27 million people worldwide have attended an Alpha course. Alpha is for anyone to explore the Christian faith, no matter what their background or beliefs, and is currently running in tens of thousands of churches of all denominations across the globe.

"What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions: life, death and their meaning"

-The Guardian

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. 

How does it work?

We'll be doing things a bit differently during 'lock down': Alpha is a series of online sessions. Normally on Alpha, each session includes:

  • Food (so feel free to bring your meal to zoom!),
  • A short talk and,
  • A discussion at the end, where you can share your thoughts .

 

At any point, if you think Alpha isn't for you, that's not a problem. There's no pressure, no follow up and no charge. 

The online course starts at 7.45pm on a Wednesday, and we'll always be finished by 9pm.

Location?

We will meet online, using Zoom - sign up below to get the meeting details sent to you.

Cost?

No pressure. No follow up. No charge.
