LIFE IS WORTH EXPLORING
WHAT IS ALPHA?
The Alpha course is open to everyone interested in
discovering what Christianity is about. It’s a place where
people can come and relax, eat, share thoughts and
explore the meaning of life.
HOW ALPHA WORKS
Alpha courses are based around small groups of about twelve people, led by one or two hosts whose role is to facilitate and encourage discussion. Courses vary in size and, at Trinity, are evening courses typically lasting two hours.
WHO IS ALPHA FOR?
The Alpha course is designed primarily for people who aren’t churchgoers and is open to anyone who would like to attend.
WHY ATTEND THE ALPHA COURSE?
Guests come on the Alpha course for many different reasons; some want to investigate whether God exists and some have questions they’d like to discuss. 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 COURSE WEEKLY FORMAT
The Alpha course usually lasts for ten weeks, with a day or weekend away in the middle. Each session begins with a meal or refreshments, then a short talk looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion, when guests can ask questions and contribute their opinions.
