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 with an online meeting including an introduction, a video exploring an aspect of the Christian faith and the opportunity for breakout discussion groups on the topic that the video covered.

There will also be lots of opportunities to ask any questions that you may have. 

SESSIONS

CCM will be running an Alpha Course, beginning in February 2024.

The course will be made up of eight Tuesday evening sessions, each starting at 7:00pm and running until 9pm. Each evening will start with snack style food and opportunities to chat, then show a video that explains one aspect of the Christian faith, followed by discussion around tables where you can freely ask whatever questions you have or share your thoughts. 

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 are able to catch up on the content that you missed.
