Alpha COURSE – October

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Usually this happens over eleven weeks, each session looks at a different question that people can have about faith and is designed to create conversation. It’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and information environment. Each session includes food, a short talk and discussion where you can share your thoughts. There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
