Each session, people enjoy great food, laughter and learning about the teachings of Jesus in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is seen as too simple or too hostile. There is no charge to attend the Alpha Course.

Who is Alpha For?

Alpha is for anyone.  People attend Alpha from all backgrounds, religions and viewpoints.  They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, what happens after death, the teaching of Jesus and more. Many guests have never been to church; others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.  Everyone is welcome.

The Alpha Course teaches the basic biblical teaching on which all Christians agree.  Alpha is run in 169 countries around the world, printed material is available in 83 languages, and all major denominations run Alpha.
