Church Life: Alpha Course
The ALPHA Course
WHAT IS ALPHA?
Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile. And it's supported by all the main Christian denominations.
The Alpha course consists of a series of talks looking at topics such as 'Who is Jesus?' and 'Why and how do I pray?'.
After each talk we divide into small groups for a time of discussion.
WHO IS ALPHA FOR?
Alpha is for everyone, especially:
- Those wanting to investigate Christianity
- New Christians
- Newcomers to the Church
- Those who want to brush up on the basics
WHAT WILL IT COST?
There is no charge for the Alpha course, although a donation of L3 is recommended for the evening to cover the food cost.
WHEN AND WHERE?
The course usually runs on Mondays from October every year at 7:30pm in St. Josephs Hall, starting with a meal, followed by a video and ends with group discussions.

What is faith?
We all have questions. And at every stage of our faith walk, whether we are practicing or lapsed, a Christian from another tradition, a non-believer, or just curious, we seek the infinite truth.
