Alpha1.jpgSt George's regularly runs the Alpha Course, which is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life.  Over 16 million people have attended Alpha which is run by tens of thousands of churches worldwide.

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over ten thought-provoking weeks.  People attend Alpha for many reasons.  Some wish to find out about Christianity for the first time, others want to ask particular questions.  Still, others are already committed Christians but wish to refresh their faith by exploring again the basics.

Each Alpha session has a very simple format.  There is always a social time, to begin with, where course participants can meet and chat, often over some food.  Then we watch a DVD of a talk on an aspect of the Christian faith.  Topics include, "Who is Jesus?", "Why did Jesus die?", "Why and how do I read the Bible?"  Then we have a discussion time in small groups, where the topic of the talk can be explored, or other questions asked.  At Alpha, no question is too hard or hostile to ask.

We have a dedicated team who plan and run each Alpha Course and their task is to make every course a helpful learning experience for every participant.  We often find that, once an Alpha Course is finished, the participants want to continue to meet to explore the relevance of the Christian faith to their lives.
