What is alpha?


Alpha courses are run in the church from mid-September to Christmas on Thursday evenings starting at 7.00pm. The sessions are spread over 10 weeks. Each evening starts with a meal together followed by talk and open discussions on a range of Christian topics from, for example: Why did Jesus have to die? to: Is Faith still relevant today?

All are invited to come along and learn more of our Christian Faith in a relaxing and informal environment. Although we are based in a Methodist Church the ethos of the discussion is non-denominational. There is no charge.
