What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.  Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome.  It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it.  No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common:

food, a talk and good conversation!

Alpha at St. John's Church

Every year at the start of autumn we run Alpha courses in the evening and during the day at St. John’s Church, Langdon Hills.

Alpha is a 10 week course which gives guests the opportunity to explore the Christian faith. It is a chance to ask questions you may have always wanted to ask or to just look at life a little bit deeper.

Alpha is designed primarily for people who aren’t churchgoers, and there is absolutely no commitment to attend church during or after the course.  One thing about Alpha is that it is friendly, relaxed and informal. Ask whatever you like, or just sit quietly and listen.

Courses attract a wide range of guests of different ages, backgrounds and viewpoints and this makes for interesting and diverse discussions.  Some people have particular questions that they would like to discuss; others want to understand other peoples’ beliefs or would like to explore what the purpose of life is.

It really is for anyone…bring a friend, partner or just come on your own.  Everyone is welcome. So don’t miss out, register now for further details.
