What is Alpha? 

Ever wanted to explore the meaning of life? If you have, then Alpha could be just for you!


Alpha is a series of interactive sessions where you can explore the big questions of life through the lens of the Christian faith, in a relaxed and low-pressure environment.

Anyone, of any age, who is curious to find out more about faith is welcome to join us. It’s designed for those who are exploring and questioning; it’s for the cynics, the sceptics and the open-minded.


Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with a meal or a pudding because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.


We watch an Alpha talk together, the Alpha videos are designed to take you on a journey, where you can explore the basics of the Christian faith. Each week will be walking us through the Alpha material in a way that everyone can relate to. Looking at topics like ‘Why did Jesus die?’ ‘How to have Faith?’ and ‘Does God heal today?’


Probably the most important part of any Alpha, is the chance to share your thoughts and ideas on the topic, and discuss what you’ve heard with others. ​There’s no obligation to say anything and there really is nothing you can’t say. Where everyone has opportunity to contribute their own perspective.
