We sometimes run Alpha courses usually in the autumn - details nearer the time

What is the point of life?

What happens when we die?

What relevance does Jesus have for our lives today?

How do we deal with guilt?

If you would like to explore any of these questions, then Alpha is for you.


Alpha is for:

Anyone interested in finding out more about the Christian faith. People of all ages are welcome.

Learning and laughter. It is possible to learn about the Christian faith and have fun at the same time.

People meeting together. An opportunity to get to know each other and to make new friends.

Helping one another. The small groups give you a chance to discuss issues raised during the talks.

Ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is regarded as too simple or too hostile.


Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone! It’s particularly for:

- People interested in investigating Christianity.

- Church members who want to deepen their faith.

- Newcomers to the church.

- New Christians.

- Couples preparing for marriage.

- Parents who take seriously their child’s baptism.


What happens?

There will be a simple meal

There is a series of talks on such topics as:

            - Who is Jesus?

            - Why did Jesus die?

            - Why and how should I read the bible?

            - Why and how do I pray?

            - What about the Holy Spirit?

            - How does God guide us?

            - How can I overcome evil?

            - Why and how should I tell others?

            - Does God heal today?

            - What about the church?

After each talk we divide into smaller groups to discuss any issues or questions you have, giving you the opportunity to get to know each other and learn more.

What will it cost?

No charge is made for the course but donations towards the cost of food etc. will be welcome.
