What is Alpha?
Alpha is an adult course which investigates and explores Christianity in a relaxed, informal and friendly way. In other words, you want to know more but perhaps don’t want to have to come to church on a Sunday to do it. Alpha is a “course” following a set curriculum and we promise no hard
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone. Especially if you thought church might be boring or if you’ve been and didn’t get what it was all about. Maybe you wanted to ask some pertinent questions but were never given the opportunity. Questions like: What’s that bloke at the front going on about?
When is the next Alpha Course?
Every Tuesday from 19th January – 22nd March
What happens at Alpha?
7:30pm = DINNER:
Each Alpha evening starts with a two course meal, waitress served and provided FREE of charge! The idea of sharing a meal together is that it sets the tone for the evening, and also encourages guests to get to know one another and therefore help them to be more open and speak up during their chat back time.
8:15pm = TALK:
After the meal there is a short talk. Alpha follows a set curriculum and each week you will investigate a variety of interesting subjects such as: “Is Christianity boring, untrue & irrelevant?” and “Why did Jesus die?“ This presentation lasts about 30mins.
8:45pm = CHAT BACK TIME:
Alpha ends with “Chat back” time. This is your opportunity to have your say and to ask and discuss anything that you want. No question, remark, or opinion on Alpha is too extreme and normally we find that discussions are open and frank. This part of Alpha is often voted the best bit by participants.
