What is Alpha?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It's relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun. There is a meal together at the beginning of each session which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other.

Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile, and it's supported by all the main Christian denominations. Listen, learn, discuss and discover, and ask anything.
