Exploring the big questions of life
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the big questions of life through the lens of the Christian faith. We intentionally create a relaxed and low-pressured environment so no question is ‘off the table’ and everyone is welcome. Alpha has been running all over the world for the last couple of decades in churches, pubs, prisons & homes where nearly 30 million people have taken part and loved the experience.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for adults of any age or background, specifically for those who are exploring faith for the very first time or exploring faith for the first time in a very long time! It’s for the cynics, the sceptics and anyone with an open-mind!
What happens at Alpha?
At each of the sessions you’ll be seated in a small group of people ‘cafe-style’ with food and refreshments available. Each week there’ll be an engaging 25 minute film on various different topics, followed by an opportunity for open, honest discussion.
When is Alpha?
Alpha meets every week on a Wednesday at 7:00pm-9:15pm at Burnham On Sea Baptist Church and runs for 11 weeks . The next Alpha course begins in September 2020....invite your friends! Check out the calendar for all the dates.
