The Alpha Course.
Have you ever wondered if there is more to life than what you see? Whether there is life after death? Who exactly was Jesus and why is He viewed by Christians as being so important? Well, if it's answers you seek, maybe the Alpha Course is for you.
The Alpha Course is designed primarily for people who aren't churchgoers and each course is open to everyone who would like to attend. As a course, Alpha attracts a diverse range of guests of different ages and backgrounds, holding many different viewpoints. Over 7,000 churches are currently running the Alpha course across the UK in rural and urban settings, including every major UK city.
“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
People do Alpha for a wide variety of reasons - some want to investigate whether God exists; others are concerned about what happens after death. Some people have particular questions that they would like to discuss; others want to understand other peoples' beliefs or would like to explore what the purpose of life is. Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.
