Alpha Explore Large


    Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It's relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun.
    There is a meal together at the beginning of each session which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other.
    Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
    We run it twice a year but it's supported by all the main Christian denominations. 


    The Alpha course consists of a series of talks, looking at topics such as 'Who is Jesus?' and 'Why and how do I pray?'. We meet for supper and each talk is followed by discussion in small groups.    


    Alpha is for everyone, especially:

    • Those wanting to investigate Christianity

    • New Christians

    • Newcomers to the church

    • Those considering confirmation

    • Those who want to brush up on the basics

There is no charge for the course, although you are requested to make a contribution towards the food
