The Alpha Course 

Everyone has questions

AlphaWe believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian Faith, ask questions and share their point of view.

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith, Jesus and being a Christian and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk, and good conversation.

No pressure. No follow up. No charge. 24 million people have tried Alpha in 169 countries and 112 languages (2018 figures).

‘What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions: life and death and their meaning.’  The Guardian.

We put on Alpha courses regularly - sometimes twice annually.

The courses run for 8 weeks. We run it jointly with Ridgeway Community Church but in our own Thames Street building.

I'm interested - how do I sign up?

Please get in touch through or speak to someone in church.
