Over 15 million people worldwide have now attended an Alpha course, an opportunity to explore the meaning of life, running in thousands of churches across the world.
“What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions – life and death and their meaning.”
The Guardian, London
“What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going, relaxed feel of the proceedings – that, and its astonishing success.”
The Times, London
“Many claim Alpha has changed their lives and appear genuinely happier for the experience.”
“Alpha is an unqualified triumph.”
The Daily Telegraph, London
“Alpha makes Christianity relevant to modern life.”
The Express, London
What is Alpha?
The Alpha course, is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. Its relaxed, low key, friendly and fun. Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
The Alpha course looks at a series of topics, such as How can I develop a relationship with God?. After a short presentation, we divide into small groups for a time of informal discussion.
Wednesday 8th May: 7.30pm – 10.00pm at the Saint James Centre (Oxford Road, Gerrards Cross, SL9 7DJ), please come to the launch event, a curry and interview with Linvoy Primus on Wednesday 1st May at 7.30pm (tickets for this event £12 from the Saint James Centre).
