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 Spring Alpha Course starts on Wednesday, February 2nd. It's happening in person in our Woodlands venue and runs for 10 weeks.

There's a meal followed by a short talk and then the opportunity to discuss what you think in small groups.


Our Spring Alpha Online starts on Wednesday, February 2nd. It's happening online and runs for 10 weeks.

The talk is delivered through a high quality video presentation and then there's the opportunity to discuss things in Zoom breakout groups.

"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."
