Alpha runs here – January 2018

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.  Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.  Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome.  It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes — you name it.  No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

First up there’s Food

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together.  It’s no different at Alpha.  The sessions at St Peter’s will start with a meal because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Then a Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation.  Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about eleven weeks, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video.  They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?  If you would like to watch a talk, go to https/

Followed by Discussion

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group.  There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously).  It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.


If you would like to try Alpha, come to St Peter’s Church, Wednesdays 6:00 – 8:00 pm, starting 10th January 2018 or contact Sarah Martin –  [email protected]  or  0791 325 9490.
