Alpha is a short series of interactive sessions that explore the big questions of life through the lens of the Christian faith in a relaxed and low-pressure environment.

Alpha has been run all over the world in churches, pubs, prisons & homes where millions and millions of people have loved taking part.

Anyone, of any age, who is curious to find out more about faith is welcome to join us. It’s designed for those who are exploring and questioning; it’s for the cynics, the sceptics and the open-minded.

If you’re interested in taking part in a future Alpha course, please let us know.

More details to follow

No two Alphas sessions look the same

but generally, they have three key things in common:


Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together.

​It’s no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.


The Alpha Film Series is designed to take the audience on an epic journey exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each episodes will be walking us through the regular Alpha material in a way that everyone can relate to.  The episodes feature inspiring stories and interviews from all around the world, as well as visual illustrations and motion graphics.


Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group.

​There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
