THE ALPHA COURSE
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around the big questions of life and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and is suitable for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, either for themselves or to support their Christian friends and family members.
Each session kicks off with a delicious meal (free of charge) and a chance to meet new people! The main content consists of a series of easy-to-follow videos that explain different aspects of Christianity. Following each video we break into small groups to discuss the content, explore people’s beliefs or understanding and answer any questions that arise
We ran an Alpha Course in May 2022 and we hope to run another one soon so we’ll post the dates here and to social media when we have them confirmed.
PART 1: WATCH AN INSPIRING FILM
The Alpha episodes are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They’re about thirty minutes long and explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus?, How can we have faith? and How does God guide us?
PART 2: DISCUSSION GROUPS
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: 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 (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Don’t take our word for it, watch some short video testimonials of people who have done the course in the past.
