What happens at Alpha

September 15, 2005

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner over 10 thought-provoking weekly sessions. Itís low key, friendly and fun. And itís supported by all the main Christian denominations.

Alpha starts with a  light meal together at the beginning of each session, which gives people a chance to get to know each other.
After each talk we divide into small groups to discuss the topic of the evening, ask questions and express opinions.
Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
Alpha is for everyone, especially:

Those wanting to investigate Christianity

New Christians

Newcomers to the church

Those who want to brush up on the basics.

The Alpha course runs in every type of church, including:Anglican, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Salvation Army, Free Church, Pentecostal, Assemblies of God and House Churches.All the churches provide the same material, making alterations only to suit local culture
