Alpha

Alpha

Who is it for?

Alpha is for anyone who’s curious! The talks, which we watch as a series of short films, encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal way. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

How does it work?

Alpha is usually eleven sessions with the option of a day or weekend away in the middle. In the context of lockdown, we might need to be creative about the away day! This time we are doing Alpha online, using video a conferencing  app (Don’t panic, we can help you set this up). We are going to gather online, bringing a pudding or cake and a cuppa. We’ll spend some time just chatting and getting to know each other, then we’ll watch a short film. At the end there will be  some  discussion,  where you can share your thoughts. At any point, if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem. There’s no pressure to come back or you can just leave the online meeting!

How much is it?

There’s no charge to do Alpha.
