What happens at Alpha Online?

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to ask the big questions of life.

Alpha takes place on Thursday’s at 19:30 BST.  When you sign up you will be put in an online group with other people on the course.

Each session includes watching a short film and an online discussion where you can share what you think with a small group of people. 

You don’t have to come to the whole course – just pop along and see what you think. 


What will it cost?

The Thursday  Alpha online sessions are absolutely free.  If you’d like, you can make a contribution towards the course but there is no obligation to do so.

Okay, I’m interested…what next?

Email us and we will send you the Zoom link to join.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

We look forward to meeting you!
