What is Alpha?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the big questions of life such as: Why are we here?   What happens after we die?   Why is our spirituality important?   Exactly who was this man Jesus?   Why is there so much suffering?  It is relaxed, low-key, friendly and fun.  There is no question too simple, too silly, too big or too hostile that you can't ask it.  Anything goes!  There is a meal together at the beginning of the evening to give you a chance to relax and get to know some of the others on the course.  Listen, learn, discuss and discover.  (There is no charge for the course but we do ask for a small voluntary donation for the meal.)

The Alpha Course phenomenon
The Alpha course is now running in more than 7000 locations around the UK and more than 1.5 million people have attended an Alpha course in the UK to date.  The course, which started at a London church in the early 1980's, is now run in more than 100 countries around the world and in dozens of different languages.  For hundreds of thousands of people going on an Alpha course has been the start of experiencing life in a completely fresh, new and exciting way.

The Alpha Course at Hucclecote is not being run just now - we await demand for this . . .
