The Alpha course

This course is running in virtual form at present. Contact the vicar or the office for more details, and when the next course is planned.

What is Alpha?

The Alpha Course is a series of interactive sessions designed to provide you with an opportunity to explore the big questions in life. It’s a relaxed, informal and fun way to help you explore the Christian faith in a relaxed environment.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone.

Guests come along for many different reasons; some want to investigate whether God exists and some have questions they’d like to discuss.

Many have never been to church. Others have been churchgoers for years but are looking to develop a more personal relationship with God.  

What Happens at Alpha?

Each week, after some food & drinks, there is a talk on an aspect of Christianity followed by informal discussion in groups facilitated by a host - and you can ask what you like. It provides a relaxed and safe environment in which no question is considered too simple or too hostile. 

How Much Does It Cost?

There is no charge for attending the course, though donations towards the cost of the refreshments are welcome.
