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 12 weeks, with a day or weekend getaway in the middle. Each week, guests gather for about two hours. They share a home-cooked meal and an informal dessert, listen to a talk on how Christianity approaches the question at hand, and 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:


  • Week 1:          Is There More to Life Than This?
  • Week 2:          Who is Jesus?
  • Week 3:          How Can I Have Faith?
  • Week 4:          Why and How Do I Pray?
  • Week 5:          Why Did Jesus Die?
  • Week 6:          How Should I Read the Bible?
  • Week 7:          How Does God Guide?
  • Week 8:          How Can I Make the Most of My Life?
  • Week 9:          How Can I Resist Evil?
  • Week 10:        How & Why Tell Others?
  • Week 11:        Does God Still Heal?
  • Week 12:        What About the Church?
