ALPHA is a 12-week discussion group that serves as a practical introduction to the Christian faith. People attend ALPHA from many different backgrounds, religions and viewpoints. They attend for a variety of reasons. Some want to investigate whether God exists and if there is any point to life; others are concerned about what happens after death. Still others may have attended church all their life, but feel they never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. ALPHA is the course for everyone who thinks there may be more to life than meets the eye.
