Stay Curious. Why not give Alpha a try? 

Our next Alpha starts: 1 February 2023 


Morning Alpha 9:45-11:00AM

Evening Alpha 7:30-9:15PM


What is Alpha?

Alpha is a chance to ask questions and explore the Christian faith in a fun, no-pressure environment. Alpha takes place across eight sessions with the option of a day or weekend away in the middle.

"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?

Each session includes food, a short talk, and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.

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.


St Matthias Church, Ditchling Rd. Brighton, BN1 6GQ
