what is

THE ALPHA COURSE

The Alpha Course is an introduction to Christianity that has been experienced by over 27 million people in 169 countries.

It is a series of evenings, each starting with some food and drinks, followed by a talk or video about some area of basic Christian belief, and then a time of group discussion where you are free to explore whatever questions you have.

In addition to the evening sessions, there is also a Saturday ‘Alpha Day’ part way through the course that gives space to explore some topics in greater depth.

SESSIONS

CCM will be running an Alpha Course in Manchester, beginning in January 2018.

The course will be made up of 8 Tuesday evening sessions plus one Saturday.

You will get the most benefit from the course if you commit to attending all of the sessions. However, if this is not possible we would still encourage you to participate and we will make sure you can catch up on the content that you missed.
