Alpha Course


The Alpha Course is a series of weekly sessions where you can explore the Christian faith in an open-minded, safe and welcoming environment.  There’s no cost and no pressure, just lots of great conversation and space to think.  Each session includes tea, coffee, cake, a video and a short talk, and time to discuss your thoughts about what you have heard.    Whatever questions you’ve got, you can ask them!  Each week has a different theme and each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe and everyone is welcome.  It runs online, in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it!  No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: hospitality, a talk and good conversation.

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore faith, ask questions and share their point of view.


Where:  St Alban’s Church, 96 Oak Hill, Wood Street Village, GU3 3ES.
