What is ALPHA?
The ALPHA course is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life.
ALPHA is an introduction to Christianity for adults in a relaxed, friendly setting.
The Alpha meets Tuesday nights, and participants enjoy a meal, an instructional video, followed by a discussion in small groups. The course is for ten weeks.

Anyone interested in exploring the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. No pressure!
Laughing and learning. It is possible to learn about the Christian faith and have fun at the same time!
People enjoying great food, great company, and the chance to make new friends.
Helping others and yourself in small groups – a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is seen as
too direct or silly.
Asking questions like:

Why does God allow suffering?
What happens when I die?
Don't religion and science conflict?
