Try Alpha


Over 15 million people worldwide have now attended an Alpha course, an opportunity to explore the meaning of life, running in tens of thousands of churches of all denominations across the world.

"What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going, relaxed feel of the proceedings - that, and its astonishing success."

The Times, London

What is Alpha?

The Alpha course, is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It’s relaxed, low key, friendly and fun. Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile. And it’s supported by all the main Christian denominations.

What’s involved?

The Alpha course looks at a series of topics. After a short presentation, we divide into small groups for a time of informal discussion.

On Thursday evenings - 5.00pm - 6.30pm in the Church

 You don’t have to come to the whole course – just pop along for the first night/ morning and see what you think.
