Alpha is a 10-week course designed as a practical introduction to the basics of Christianity with plenty of opportunity for debate and discussion. The style of Alpha is deliberately friendly and informal. Each week people get together for a meal and a talk, followed by small group discussion. Some of the topics include “Who is Jesus?”, “Why Did Jesus Die?” and “How Can I be Sure of My Faith?”. There is a day or weekend retreat midway through the course which focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit.
Alpha can benefit those who have never set foot in a church, those who once attended, those who are regular churchgoers, those who are investigating Christianity for the first time or those who are revisiting their faith. Alpha has a marriage preparation course, ESL course, parenting courses and the Youth Film Series.
