What is the Alpha course? Alpha is a non-pressurised, fun and informative course. It is a place to share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life. The course is designed primarily for people who don't go to church or who haven't been to church in a long time and are interested in the Christian faith. The growth of Alpha in the UK and worldwide The Alpha Course spread during the 1990s, initially in the UK and then internationally, as more and more churches and groups found it a helpful and informal way to discuss questions about the Christian faith. There are now over 55,000 courses worldwide in 166 countries. Alpha is supported by all the major denominations. When is the next Alpha course? We are running the next Alpha course sometime in 2014. Please do call or email the office to book a place, it would be great to hear from you. We always say, come along, see how you find it, if you like it come again, if it's not for you, that's fine too.
