Explore life, faith & meaning

Alpha is an opportunity to discuss the big questions of life and explore the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. Every week we’ll be joining people, in the same boat as you, to watch episodes designed to spark conversation, where no question is out of bounds.

We'll be launching Alpha Cafe on Wednesday 11th May 2022.

"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

What to expect

Our course runs over 8 weeks; you can just try the first one and see what you think. Everyone’s welcome and there’s no pressure or charge. 


Each session takes place in person at The Hope Centre, where you’ll meet other people with questions just like yours


We watch a 25 minute film together that’s designed to inspire questions.


At the end of each session there’s an open discussion where you can share your thoughts in small groups.

The power of invitation

Each episode is designed to engage and inspire conversation. They’re about thirty minutes long and explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus?
