The Alpha Course

The Alpha Course is

a fun informative and non-pressurised way to explore the Christian faith

a place to share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life

an opportunity to ask questions (no question is too controversial or too silly)


The Alpha Course is a popular introduction to the Christian faith that is run all over the world.  To date, about 27 million people have done the course.  Alpha is designed primarily for people who don't go to church or those who simply want to explore the Christian faith.

The Alpha Course lasts 10 weeks.  After a meal together, there will be a thought-provoking talk, followed by discussion in small groups.

To find out what the course is like, without commitment, come to the Alpha Supper at 7:30pm on Tuesday 19th September at St Sebastian's Parish Centre.

There is no charge.  All we ask is that you contact the Parish Office as soon as possible, but no later than Monday 11th September, if you are coming, so that we know numbers for catering.

At the Alpha Supper, if you would like to, you can sign up for the main course, which begins the following Tuesday (26th September).
