Mission and Outreach
Alpha is an opportunity to explore
life and the Christian faith, in a friendly, open and informal
environment with the opportunity of enjoying supper as well!
It is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the
basics of the Christian faith.
Guests come on Alpha for many different reasons; some want to
investigate whether God exists and some have questions they
would like to discuss.
is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as
little as you wish.
Many guests have never been to church and others may have
attended church, but feel they have never had a personal
understanding of the Christian faith.
Alpha is proving to be greatly used by God with 9,970
courses running in the UK and more than 60,000 courses operating
worldwide in 169 countries and 112 languages. The total number
of people who have been on Alpha is approximately 18
million worldwide, so it is hugely popular.
One of the most significant contributions that Alpha makes is an
emphasis which it places on the value of relationships. The
practice of guests returning to the same group each week,
sharing a friendly time together over a meal
together, on neutral ground, ensures that people are put at ease
and better able to hear a talk and ask questions at the end.
This is where Alpha is at its strongest.
The Spring Term Course has now finished.
