Alpha

So… Does God exist?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Maybe

If you’re looking for answers to this question, the Alpha course could be for you.

What is Alpha?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner over seven thought-provoking weekly sessions.

There’s a meal together at the beginning of each session which gives you a chance to get to know others on the course. It’s followed by a series of talks on topics like Who is Jesus?, and How and why do I pray?, after which you’ll we break into small groups to discuss the talk, and raise any questions.

Listen, learn and discover – and ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.

It’s low key, friendly and fun - and it’s supported by all the main Christian denominations.

Alpha takes place in the Church Centre. Each course begins with a celebration supper then meets each Thursday at 7.15pm for the next seven weeks, plus an Away Day on a Saturday midway through the course.

At All Saints Ron and Helen Glenn coordinate Alpha and we aim to run three courses through the year, one each term.
