The Alpha Course is open to anyone interested in discovering what Christianity is about. It’s relaxed, friendly and informal. It’s a place where people can confidently come and ask questions, delve into issues and look for answers together. The Alpha course is designed primarily for those people who are not churchgoers or sure about faith matters, but is open to anyone who would like to attend.
St Mary’s runs two evening Alpha courses each year, usually coinciding with the autumn and spring school terms, and often in partnership with other local churches. Occasionally there is Alpha for young people, or a course aimed at specific groups, eg young mums, or those retired and in later years.
The course runs over 12 weekly sessions, and includes a half-day on a Saturday or Sunday. The course may begin with a meal or light refreshments, and includes a talk followed by led discussion in small groups.
