The Alpha Course

Alpha is a worldwide phenomenon. It’s found in over 169 countries. It’s run in tens of thousands of schools, prisons, homes and churches of all denominations. It’s given more than 19.6 million people the opportunity to explore the meaning of life.

The Alpha course covers the basics of Christianity.

It answers questions like: Who is Jesus?, and Why did he die? The Alpha course usually lasts 10 weeks, with a day or weekend getaway in the middle. Each week, guests gather for about two hours. They share an informal meal, sing a few songs, listen to a talk on how Christianity approaches the question at hand, then gather into small groups for discussion. The talks each week act as a springboard for small group discussions.

Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course usually meets once a week for 10 weeks, including a weekend getaway. Sessions begin with a meal followed by a short talk and and time to discuss what’s been taught.

During the discussion everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered hostile or too simple.

Many guests have never been to church, some have gone occasionally, but don’t know if they really understand the Christian faith.  Everyone is welcomed.
