THE ALPHA COURSE

The Alpha course is a ten-week opportunity to explore the validity and relevance of the Christian faith for our lives today. It is a practical introduction to the basics of Christianity with loads of opportunity for debate and discussion.

The style of Alpha is informal, friendly and non-pressured - and it's free!

Alpha 1

Alpha is enjoyed and appreciated as much by those who have never set foot in a church as it is by those who once attended and by the regular churchgoer. No matter what their background, whether investigating Christianity for the first time or revisiting their faith, participants get a lot out of an Alpha Course.


Each week people meet together for a meal, a talk on topics such as "Who is Jesus?", "Why Did Jesus Die?", "How Can I be Sure of My Faith?", and "Does God Still Heal Today?”, followed by small group interaction. 

Churches of every different type and background, including Anglican, Baptist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, Methodist, Pentecostal, Salvation Army, Free Church and House Churches are running Alpha.  This is because Alpha covers the basics of Christianity understood by all the main denominations.

Alpha 2

Alpha originated at Holy Trinity Brompton - an Anglican church in London, England - over twenty years ago. The syllabus of the course is contained in the Book "Questions of Life" by Revd Nicky Gumbel.  Thousands of Alpha courses are now running right across the world and it has been translated into many different languages.  Visit the Alpha web site here.

Church leaders from all denominations report the astonishing impact the course has on non-churchgoers and existing Christians in their areas. And it's spreading fast to many secular locations.
