What is it
Sometimes it’s easier not to ask questions but on Alpha we think life is worth exploring, so your questions are welcome no matter how ‘out there’ they are. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the meaning of life. It’s fun, relaxed and totally no pressure (that’s why over 22.5 million people worldwide have already done it).
Who’s it for
Got lots of meaningful questions? Never really understood the Christian faith or been to church? Maybe you gave up on it a long time ago. Alpha was designed for you, or anyone who doesn’t go to church much, if at all.
What’s so great about it
Ever wanted to explore the meaning of life or ask challenging questions about the Christian faith? Maybe you’re just curious about church stuff and want to have a nosy? Alpha doesn’t care about your background, it welcomes all those big questions and it’s free. Can’t say fairer than that right?
How does it work
Alpha is made up of small groups of about 12 people with a host and helper. The course consists of ten weekly sessions plus a Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The weekly sessions are between 1 ½ and 2 hours long.
How much is it
There’s no charge to do Alpha, but a small voluntary contribution can be made towards food.
Alpha at St Barnabas
Alpha is here again, starting on Monday 9th January 2017 at 7-9.30pm in the Parish centre. Alpha is a practical introduction to the Christian faith and is for everyone, especially those wanting to investigate Christianity, newcomers to the church and those wanting to refresh their faith. Each week the 10 weekly sessions will start with a light bite followed by a DVD on a specific topic and then time for informal discussion. A creche will be available.
