About the Alpha Course:

The Alpha course covers the basics of Christianity. It answers questions like: Who is Jesus?, and Why did He die? The Alpha course usually lasts 10 weeks, with a day or weekend getaway in the middle. Each week, guests gather for about two hours. They share an informal dessert, listen to a talk on how Christianity approaches the question at hand, then gather into small groups for discussion. The talks each week act as a springboard for small group discussions. Alpha guests explore Christianity in a relaxed, welcoming, and engaging atmosphere.

Each session explores a particular question:

  • Is there more to life than this?
  • Week 1:          Who is Jesus?
  • Week 2:          Why did Jesus die?
  • Week 3:          How can we have faith?
  • Week 4:          Why and how do I pray?
  • Week 5:          Why and how should I read the Bible?
  • Week 6:          How does God guide us?
  • Week 7:          How can I resist evil?
  • Week 8:          Why & how should we tell others?
  • Week 9:          Does God heal today?
  • Week 10:        What about the Church?
  • Weekend        Who is the Holy Spirit?
