What is Alpha?
Alpha is a course for everyone interested in discovering what Christianity is about. It’s a place where people can come and relax, eat, share thoughts and explore the meaning of life.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
How Alpha works
Alpha courses are based around small groups of up to twelve people. We meet in on of our homes and are led by one or two hosts whose role is to facilitate and encourage discussion.
Why attend the Alpha course?
Guests come on the Alpha course for many different reasons; some want to investigate whether God exists and some have questions they’d like to discuss. Many guests have never been to church and others may have attended church but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.
Alpha course weekly format
The Alpha course usually lasts for ten weeks, with a day or weekend away in the middle. Each session begins with a meal or refreshments, then a short talk looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion, when guests can ask questions and contribute their opinions.
There is no charge to attend the Alpha course.
When is the next Alpha?
Our current Alpha course is running from Wednesday 22nd September to Wednesday 15th December. This excludes half-term, and includes one away-day! Sessions will take place from 10.30am - 12 noon in the Chapel at BRBC.
