The course is based around small groups of about 12 people, hosted by one or two leaders whose role is to facilitate and encourage discussion, and will last for 8 weeks, with a half day on a weekend toward the end.Each session begins with a meal or refreshments - a chance to get to know other in the small group.
There is then a short talk (on video), which looks at different aspects of the Christian faith each week.
This is followed by a time of discussion in the small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion, ask questions and discuss with the rest of the group.
Whatever the group size, people tend to remain in the same small groups for the duration of the course so they can get to know each other, continue discussions and deepen friendships.
The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course
, although courses may ask for a contribution towards the food (for in person courses only, this is usually a "bring a plate to share" type contribution).We'd love you to join us for our next Alpha. For more information or to register, email us.
