Alpha is a series of sessions exploring life, faith and meaning.
The next Alpha starts 11th October 2023.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring life, faith and meaning. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes - you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
The course at runs for 9 weeks and includes a day away on Saturday, 18th November.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
