The Alpha Course
Rediscover Your Faith

Sign up for Alpha Online Course


Alpha is an eleven-week series of interactive sessions that explore the big questions of life through the lens of the Christian faith, in a relaxed and low-pressured environment, where no question is out of bounds. Alpha has been run all over the world in churches, pubs, prisons & homes where millions and millions of people have loved taking part. Here at St John’s and Sacred Heart we cover the costs so all the eleven sessions have no cost for you to attend.


Anyone, of any age, who is curious to find out more about faith is welcome to join us. It’s designed for those who are exploring and questioning; it’s for the cynics, the sceptics and the open-minded.


Currently, due to the Coronavirus we are running Alpha online using Zoom( which is easy to download)

At each of the sessions, you are within a group which you will get to know and build friendships with throughout the weeks. After initial introductions there will be a streamed 25-minute video on various different topics, followed by an opportunity for open, honest debate in smaller groups. In the middle of the eleven weeks there is an optional half day which is an opportunity for us to go deeper with exploring questions and building friendships as a group.


Alpha runs at least twice a year. The next course will start at Sacred Heart in the Spring. The day and time still to be confirmed. We hope to meet in person. Also, after our successful first two Online Alpha courses for adults we are making plans for another one in the Spring too. So you could do the Alpha course from the comfort of your own home using Zoom. If you are interested in either of these please get in touch

The Youth Alpha Course is nearly completed. If you would like to join our next course please contact
