What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

How does it work?

Alpha is ten sessions with the option of a day or weekend away in the middle. Each session includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. At any point, if you think Alpha isn't for you, that's not a problem. There's no pressure, no follow up and no charge.

 The following poem was written by a lady who attended our Alpha course.




As I started my mission with the Alpha Group

My life’s expectations took a closer look

I sat round the table, the dinner prepared

And listened as people their problems shared.


I watched in earnest the DVD

It said God had given His life for me

He’d specially chosen me – no conditions!

I found myself losing my inhibitions


You see, I found it difficult as I watched and prayed

Other people, their problems, were so dismayed

I couldn’t reach out.  I had OCD!

But to my surprise, they reached out to me!


My life has changed. I’m filling the void

I notice I’m not just so easily annoyed

My friends notice too. The fear factor’s gone

They could tell by my face as my inner self shone


For the first time in years, I have found inner peace

And I know my God’s love will never cease

So if you’re feeling down with the tedium and strife

I recommend Alpha – The Meaning of Life!
