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 hot meall followed by coffee and biscuits every week. 

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 January 26 and 27, including a meal and a talk, which give a taste of what to expect from the course.

Our Spring course will run every Tuesday at 19.15 from Feb 3 to Mar 24. If you would like to come or have any questions about what the course entails, please contact jenny@christchurchlondon.org

Day Away

Later in the term we will be holding our Alpha Day Away. This will be on 7 March at The Grange Holborn Hotel and will include three talks on the subject of the Holy Spirit. More information about this will be made available during the course. 

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
