What is Alpha?

Register Today

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life, faith and God in a friendly, open and informal environment. It is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, run over ten weeks. 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.


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.

What to Expect


Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.


The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally 25 minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

What if I missed the first week?

It doesn’t matter if you missed the first week of Alpha – you can catch up online at any point. Anyone is able to register up until session 3; after that we would encourage you to sign up for our next term and come along from session 1.

I have a few more questions before I register
