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 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 will last for 8 weeks, excluding the half-term week. Each session begins with coffee and cake, 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 next  Alpha course begins in  September.  Sessions will take place weekly on a Wednesday from 10.30am - 12 noon in the Chapel at BRBC.
