Alpha is an opportunity for anyone wishing to explore the Christian faith, this free course consists of a series of talks exploring the basic beliefs of the Christian faith over eleven sessions.
At C3, we run the Alpha Course throughout the year starting with our popular 'Alpha Supper' evenings.
Have you ever wondered what the Alpha Course is like? Or do you have a friend who is a sceptic? This is the night for you! It gives a full insight and example of how the Alpha Course actually runs. Including a wonderful dinner, some media, and a 'taster talk'. A great opportunity to invite those who would like to see what the full course will look like in a pressure-free setting.
Alpha is a series of 9 sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create good conversation over a great dinner.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually, around thirty minutes long and delivered over 9 weeks, they will be given as a live talk. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like; Who is Jesus? How can we have faith? Why and how do I pray? How does God guide us?
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
