Course Description

What is Alpha?

Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It is relaxed, low key, friendly and fun. It is a place where people can come and ask questions, delve into issues and look for answers together.

What does Alpha involve?

The Alpha course consists of a series of talks looking at topics such as "Who is Jesus?" and "Why and How do I pray?". After each talk we have a small group discussion and all questions are allowed, none is considered too threatening and none is considered too trivial.
