The Alpha Course

WHAT IS ALPHA?
Alpha is a 13-WEEK series exploring the Christian faith.  Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.
 
During the Alpha course we will explore the essential questions of life, such as:
  • Who is Jesus?
  • How can I be sure of my faith?
  • How can I resist evil?
  • What does the Holy Spirit do?
  • How can I make the most of my life?
 
WHAT TO EXPECT
No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Discussion – The most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. Yet, there’s no obligation to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
