PLEASE NOTE: Alpha is currently on hold.



What is Alpha?


Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.


It runs in churches, bars, coffee shops and homes all around the globe. Typically Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.


Alpha really is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment.


The Story So Far ...

Alpha began as an introduction to the Christian faith for new Christians attending Holy Trinity Brompton church in central London.


When curate Nicky Gumbel took over the running of Alpha at HTB in 1990, he noticed its appeal to those who would not describe themselves as Christians. Alpha became increasingly popular and, after the first training conference for church leaders in 1993, began running in other churches in the UK and around the world.


27 million people have done Alpha in 169 countries and 112 languages.



Who is the Alpha Course for?

Anyone interested in finding out more about the Christian faith.

Learning and laughter. It is possible to learn about the Christian faith and have fun at the same time.

Pasta and pudding. Eating a meal together gives people an opportunity to get to know each other.

Helping one another. The small groups give you a chance to discuss issues raised in the talks.

Ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is regarded as too simple or too hostile.
