Alpha is a 10 week course for people who want to find out more about the Christian faith in an environment outside of church. Alpha is a great place to ask questions and explore your own views in a setting that’s open to all faiths, beliefs and opinions.

A typical Alpha evening consists of a meal, a talk from the front, and conversation in small groups to discuss your opinions.

Our next Alpha course will be starting in 2020. If you’re interested in coming along, contact Jim.
