What is Alpha?
Alpha is an eleven-week series that explores the basics of the Christian faith in a relaxed environment. Small groups meet and share a simple meal, watch a short video and then discuss it. Alpha courses are currently being run all over the world in a wide variety of settings from churches to prisons, schools and in people’s homes. Everyone and anyone is welcome to take part. While no two Alpha courses are the same, probably the most important part of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (honest!). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Due to the current restrictions on meeting and the need for social distancing, our next Alpha course will be online, starting this November 4th. We will start promptly at 7.30pm and aim to finish in just over an hour.
If you sign up, you’ll be sent a link to join in by Zoom each week – allowing you to take part from the comfort of your own home.
There is no charge for taking part.
Although we cannot meet in person, we are sure you will enjoy getting to know new people and connecting through Zoom.
