“What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare
in secular culture, to discuss the big questions - life and death and their meaning."
“"What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going, relaxed feel
of the proceedings - that, and its astonishing success." The Times
"Alpha makes Christianity relevant to modern life." Daily Express
The Alpha course is a twelve-week Christian course that has taken the world by storm!
There are over 11 million people worldwide and 2 million in the UK who are involved
in an Alpha course. The reason Alpha is so popular? It is probably because it provides
an opportunity to learn more about the Christian faith in a safe, non-threatening
and friendly environment.
Each week we begin by sharing a meal together. We watch a DVD and afterwards we have
a discussion. Guests do Alpha for a wide variety of reasons – some are Christians
who want to have a refresher course, some want to investigate whether God exists;
others are concerned about what happens after death. Some people have particular
questions that they would like to discuss; others want to understand other people’s
beliefs or would like to explore what the purpose of life is. All are welcome and
no question is off-limits.
