The Alpha Course

Millions of people worldwide have attended an Alpha course, taking the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed and friendly environment. Alpha is the main way we fulfil our vision for helping people FIND Jesus.

Alpha is designed for people who are interested in finding out more about the Christian faith. For the Autumn and Spring courses, there is a meal, followed by a thought provoking talk, then a chance to ask questions and discuss in a small group context. The Summer course features light refreshments, a video presentation and small group discussion.

Alpha is ideal for anyone asking questions about faith and interested in exploring ideas. It's also good for new Christians, newcomers to church and those wanting to brush up on the basics. It's totally free and you're not tied into anything.


Our Autumn Alpha Course started on Wednesday, October 7th. It's happening in person, with social distancing, and lasts for 10 weeks.

With the current lockdown, we're also providing an Online Alpha course, so you can join in from the comfort of your own home, starting Thursday October 8th. Take a look here for more details and to register.

"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."
