Alpha is one of the best ways of exploring some of the biggest questions of life in a relaxed setting over nine thought-provoking weeks.

Over 2.5 million people in the UK have been on Alpha. It is a course which is designed particularly for people who wouldn’t normally go to church, but is open to anyone who wants to explore some of life’s biggest questions, such as whether God is real, why suffering exists, and what life is really all about.

What can I expect?

Every week at Alpha you will get to share a meal with people on your table, hear a talk on an interesting topic and get the chance to discuss it in an open and honest manner, where no question is too simple or too hostile. It’s a great place to build friendships, some of which last beyond the course. If you are coming with friends you can choose to sit together; just let us know.

What does it cost?

Alpha is completely free of charge and includes a free two-course meal every week. The optional weekend away towards the end of each course costs £50, or £35 for students and non-wage earners.

Where and when is it?

The course takes place at The Grange Hotel, 50-60 Southampton Row, London, WC1B 4AR. It begins with 2 launch nights on September 29 and 30, including a meal and a talk, which give a taste of what to expect from the course.

Our Autumn course will run every Tuesday at 19.15 from October 7 - November 25. If you would like to come or have any questions about what the course entails, please contact jenny@christchurchlondon.org or call Holly Page on 0207 384 6486

Weekend Away

Later in the term we will be holding our Alpha Weekend Away. This will be on 14-16 November at Dunford House, a large conference centre set amongst 60 acres of woodland near Midhurst, West Sussex. 

The cost is £50, or £35 for Students and non-wage earners. More details will be available nearer to the time.

Student Alpha

From time to time, we also run Alpha for student groups. This is a great opportunity for students to host a course in their house and invite friends to discuss the big questions of life over a meal. If you would like to host a Student Alpha course, or find out if there's one happening near you, get in touch with andy.tuck@christchurchlondon.org
