Alpha is an open, informal and honest place to explore and discuss life’s big questions together. It's run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It usually happens in places like cafés, churches, universities, and homes, but obviously with the current lock-down we can't physically meet, so we're taking Alpha ONLINE!
The more we think about it, the more we believe this could really work well at this time: People's diaries are a lot emptier than normal, participants can attend from the comfort of their own homes and we can have an endless number of people join.

Then there will be between 5 or 6 guests - people like you who are open to finding out more about God!
Each week we will watch a short video together that explores some of life's biggest questions, then return to our groups to spend time discussing these different subjects. Some of the questions we focus on, are:
Alpha is completely free. We're covering the promotional and IT related costs, so there's no cost for this course. It's our gift to you.
