Alpha


The Alpha Course - FOR ADULTS ONLY (18+)

The Alpha Course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner during ten thought-provoking weekly sessions.  There is a meal served at the beginning of each session which gives you an opportunity to make new friends.  Listen, learn, discuss and discover....and ask anything!  Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.

Everyone is welcome.  People attend for a wide variety of reasons.  Some want to investigate whether God exists and if there is any point to life; others are concerned about what happens after death.  Still others may have attended church on and off all their lives but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.

People come from many different backgrounds, holding many different viewpoints - but all come with the same objective: to establish whether Jesus Christ has any real relevance for their lives.  Alpha is offered 3 times a year (fall, winter and spring).  Each session is 8 weeks in length and concludes with a Celebration Night when participants have the chance to bring two guests who may benefit from Alpha.
