The Alpha Course 

Everyone has questions

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

What is Alpha?Alpha logo

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.

Each session includes food, a short talk and a discussion where you can share your thoughts.

There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.

What have you got to lose?



‘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. We run them jointly with Ridgeway Community Church, at our own Thames Street premises.

We have a course running on Mondays at 10.30am (started 20 Jan)


We are also running taster sessions through February on Monday evenings 8pm - come to any one session or all:

Mon 3 Feb: Who is Jesus?
Mon 10 Feb: Why did Jesus die?
Mon 17 Feb: How can I have faith?
Mon 24 Feb: Why and how should I pray?

I'm interested - how do I sign up?

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