What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. 

How does it work?

Alpha is nine sessions with a Weekend Away in the middle. Each session includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. At any point, if you think Alpha isn't for you, that's not a problem. There's no pressure, no follow up and no charge. 

The morning session runs from 9.45am with breakfast and a free creche for those with little ones.

The evening session starts at 7pm, with dinner until 7.30pm. We’re always finished by 9pm.


Can I help?

We're always looking for volunteers to help at Alpha. There are several teams you can get involved in so if you’d like to help with Alpha, please drop us an email at: alpha@stpetersbrighton.org

What if I missed the first week?

It doesn’t matter if you missed the first week of Alpha – you can catch up online at any point. Anyone is able to register up until session 4; after that we would encourage you to sign up for our next term and come along from session 1.
