The Adventure Starts Here What on earth? Socrates famously said "An unexamined life is not worth living." Sometimes it's easier nto to ask questions but on the Alpha Course... we think lif eis worth exploring. The course is fun, relaxed and totally non-pressured (that's probably why over 18 million people around the world have already done it!)
Who is it for? Never been to church? Not sure what you believe? Maybe you gave up church a long time ago. The course was designed for you or anyone who doesn't go to church regularly.
What's so great about it Ever wanted to explore the meaning of life or ask challenging questions about the Christian faith? Maybe you're just curious about this church stuff and want to have a nosy? Alpha doesn't care about your background, it welcomes all those big questions and it's free. Can't say fairer than that right?
How does it work? It's a course with small groups of about 12 people with host(s) and helper(s). There are usually around 10 sessions, with a day or weekend away in the middle. Each session begins with food, snacks that sort of thing, followed by a short talk looking at different aspect of the Christian faith and time for discussion.
How much is it? There's no charge to do the course though some courses may ask for a contribution towards food.
