For those who want to learn more about the Christian faith. Alpha normally runs in the autumn and spring terms.

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.
