What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in an informal, fun and friendly environment. The Alpha course consists of a series of talks, looking at topics including ‘Who is Jesus?’ and ‘Why and how do I pray?’, with the option of a day away. We meet for supper and each talk is followed by discussion in small groups. To find out more visit alpha.org
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone; no serious question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background, knowledge of, or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
