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.
Do I need to be a Christian to do the course?
No, you don't need to be a Christian. The course is designed for anyone who is interested in asking questions or learning more about the Christian faith. Many guests have never been to church before.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course, although courses may ask for a contribution towards the food and / or refreshments.
Are my questions too controversial for church?
All questions are welcome on the Alpha course. The course is designed for people to freely ask the tough questions about life and the Christian faith.
Why do people go on the Alpha course?
Guests do Alpha for a variety of reasons; some want to investigate whether God exists or question what happens after death, whereas others come to discuss particular questions, understand other peoples' beliefs or explore the meaning of life.
