What is Alpha? 

Alpha is one of the best ways of exploring life’s biggest questions. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Our Alpha lasts six weeks and each evening begins with a free meal and the opportunity to get to know others on your table. Next, there’s a thought-provoking film on a different aspect of the Christian faith followed by time for discussion with others on your table. This is your chance to ask your questions and help each other to discover some answers. No question is too simple or too feisty at Alpha.

Who is Alpha for?

Over 2.5 million people in the UK have done Alpha, and over 27 million worldwide. It is primarily designed for people who wouldn’t normally go to church, but is open to anyone who wants to explore some of life’s biggest questions. People do Alpha for a variety of reasons - some are interested in whether God exists, others have attended church in the past but feel they have never understood the basics. Alpha is a no-pressure course, which means we won’t chase you up if you decide not to come back. So come along and see if it’s for you!

“What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions – life and death and their meaning.”

The Guardian


 “What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going, relaxed feel to proceedings – that and its astonishing success.”

The Times

“Alpha makes Christianity relevant to modern life.”
