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.

Unfortunately planning for the 2022 course has been impacted by the recent pandemic however will return in 2023! In the meantime there is a link above with a film series from Alpha to help you find out more.

Alpha is a really good way to investigate the Christian faith in a friendly and unpressurised environment. We run the course each autumn and several hundred people have enjoyed them over the years. This year the sessions will begin with breakfast and we will watch a DVD film on an aspect of the Christian faith followed by discussion in table groups. Much of the strength of Alpha lies in the friendships that are built and the open nature of the discussions where people are encouraged to ask questions and express their views.

  • Would you like the opportunity to explore some big questions about life and faith?
  • To get together with others who are asking similar things, to chat, to laugh, to build bonds that last , all in an informal and relaxed environment..... AND to eat together too?
  • If so we would really love to welcome you on Alpha.

Place: St John's Church, Forest Glade, Langdon Hills, SS16 6RX
