What is Alpha?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith

in a way that is relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun.


The course consists of ten sessions plus an away-day and while you benefit most

from attending everything, it is not essential to do so. During Alpha we will look at

the following themes:


  • Who is Jesus?

  • Why did Jesus die?

  • How can I be sure of my faith?

  • Why and how should I read the Bible?

  • Why and how do I pray?

  • How does God guide us?

  • Who is the Holy Spirit and what does he do?

  • How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?

  • How can I resist evil?

  • Why and how should I tell others?

  • Does God heal today?

  • What about the Church?

  • People investigating Christianity

  • New Christians

  • Newcomers to the church

  • Those who what to renew or deepen their faith

What's involved?

 Each session begins at 7.00pm with a meal followed by a theme talk. After a coffee break we divide into small groups to discuss issues raised by the talk. People contribute to the discussion in whatever way they feel comfortable and no question is regarded as too hostile or too simple.


 What will it cost?

There is no charge for the Alpha course, although a contribution towards the the evening meal would be appreciated. There is, however, a charge for the away-day to cover the cost of the venue and food.


When does it run?

 Our next Alpha Course begins at 7.00pm on Thursday 5th October. To find out more or to sign up, please contact the church office on 0113 250 1764 or email:
