What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions to discuss the Christian faith in an informal, fun and friendly environment. Alpha consists of a series of talks, looking at topics including 'Who is Jesus?' and 'How can I have faith?'  If you have every wondered about some of those big quesions in life, such as 'If God exists, what is he like?' and 'Why is there so much suffering in the world?' then this is your chance to come and examine them in more depth.

This Autumn we are running Alpha online via zoom.  Each evening consists of a 30 minute talk and an opportunity for discussion afterwards to share your vews with others on the course.  You don’t have to come for the whole course – just pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure.

Take a look at this short clip about the course on the Alpha website.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.

When is Alpha?

Our next course will begin on Sunday 16th January 2022.  We are hoping that this course will take place in person, but if necessary, it will take place on zoom.  Please e-mail Heather to book your free place or to find out more.

What do others say?

This is what one of the participants from last year's course said, "Although I had wanted to do an Alpha course for a number of years, I was anxious about doing so. I needn't have been! In September 2020 I joined a zoom Alpha course run by Hersham Baptist Church. The content and dicussion was so engaging - each week struck a chord with me. The group were kind, encouraging, supportive and respectful. I learned so much about love and forgiveness. It has had such a terrific impact on me and my relationships, particularly with my family. It brought me peace that I have not known before. Thanks to Alpha (& the amazing course leaders) I now have a relationship with God and am loving being part of the church family."
