What is Alpha? 

The Alpha Course aims to explore the Christian faith, each week exploring a different question. It is fun, relaxed, totally no pressure--that is probably why over 19 million people around the world have already done it. 

You will listen, learn, discuss, and discover more about the big questions. 

How does it work?

Each Alpha course session begins with a coffee break, followed by a short talk, looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith. After that, there is a time for discussion in a friendly small group.

What is the cost?

There is no charge for the Alpha course, although you may bring something to share for our coffee break; sweet bread, cookies, juice, fruit, etc. 

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone. We especially encourage those who come to church and find it boring, a custom or tradition. Those wanting to investigate Christianity. Those who are new to our parish and would like to have support. Those who want to build a stronger community and get to know others. Those who want to get involved in ministry but are unsure where to start.
