Alpha Course

Alpha – Explore the Meaning of Life. The Alpha course is open to everyone interested in discovering what Christianity is about. Come, relax, eat, share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life.


Alpha Course
“Christianity is a statement which,
if false, is of no importance at all,
and if true, is of infinite importance.
The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
- C.S. Lewis.

What Is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course meets once per week for 9 weeks, and includes a weekend getaway. Each session, people enjoy great food, laughter and learning in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is seen as too simple or too hostile…questions like—Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?

Who Is Alpha For?
Alpha is for anyone…anyone who thinks there may be more to life than meets the eye.

People attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes life. Others come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during the Alpha course.

Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. Everyone is welcome.

How Much Will It Cost?
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course, except your commitment of time.

What Happens At Alpha?
Each gathering begins with a meal – a chance to get to know others. Then there is a short talk which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion in small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion and ask questions. The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.

The talks each week cover the following topics, acting as a springboard for the small group discussions.

1. Who is Jesus?
2. Why did Jesus die?
3. How can we have faith?
