Explore faith, life and meaning. Try Alpha.

Our next Alpha starts: TBC


Morning Alpha 9:45-11:00AM

Evening Alpha 7:30-9:15PM


What is Alpha?

Join a series of group conversations that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith in an open, friendly environment. 

Everyone’s welcome. You’re invited, no matter your background or beliefs. It’s free and there’s no pressure to come back.

"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?

At each Alpha session, you’ll be hosted in a small group and watch an episode on a different question of faith – then you have a chance to share your thoughts and hear what others think. You can say anything you like, or nothing at all.

What if I try it and don’t like it?
If at any point you decide Alpha isn't for you, that's not a problem. There's no pressure, no follow up, and no charge.
