The Alpha Course is designed to help you to explore the meaning of life!

Who is it for?  -  The Alpha Course is ideal for anyone wanting to investigate the claims of Christianity, those new to the Christian faith and want to know more or those who want to brush up on the basics of the Christian faith in a relaxed, informal and, we hope, non-threatening manner over fifteen, thought provoking weekly sessions.

You're not on your own either. More than 2½ million people in the UK and 13 million world-wide have found it a worthwhile experience, completing the Alpha course in churches, homes, schools, work-places, universities and prisons.

So join us on a journey of discovery . . . .
Usually beginning late January each year, the Alpha Course will continue for fifteen sessions – with stops on one or two occasions.

We normally meet at 7:30pm each evening. Eat at home before you come but leave room for Tea or Coffee and some cake when you arrive. We gather to watch Rev Nicky Gumbel on DVD giving a talk on one of the topics. You will then be given the opportunity to ask questions – perhaps a question you have always been longing to ask – “No holds barred!” We aim to finish at 9:15pm prompt.
