The Alpha course 2017

An opportunity to explore the meaning of life

The Alpha Course is a wonderful opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed and informal setting where any question is ok to ask.

A light supper is included.


What's involved?

The Alpha course consists of films looking at topics such as 'Who is Jesus?', and 'Why and how do I pray?'  After each film we divide into small groups for a time of discussion.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone, especially:
  • Those wanting to investigate Christianity
  • New Christians
  • Newcomers to the church
  • Those who want to brush up on the basics

What will it cost?

This course is free!
