You're invited.

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the big questions of life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. We intentionally create a relaxed and low-pressured atmosphere so no question is ‘off the table’ and everyone is welcome. Alpha has been running all over the world for the last couple of decades in churches, pubs, prisons and homes where nearly 30 million people have taken part and loved the experience.

Who is Alpha for?
No membership required.
Alpha is for adults of any age or background, specifically for those who are exploring faith for the very first time or exploring faith for the first time in a very long time! It’s for the cynics, the sceptics and anyone with an open-mind!
What happens at Alpha?
Talks that make you think.
At each of the 9 sessions you’ll be seated in a small group of people ‘cafe-style’ with refreshments available. Each week there’ll be an engaging 25 minute film on various different topics, followed by an opportunity for open, honest discussion. There is also an optional weekend away midway through the course.
How much does it cost?
