Alpha: explore life


Newlife Church regular runs an Alpha Course.  Please get in touch to find out the dates and venues for our next course.

What is The Alpha Course?

The Alpha Course is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith. No pressure.  No follow up.  No charge!

On a typical evening you can expect to hear a short talk about an aspect of the Christian faith, and then we simply have discussion time.

The idea of Alpha is that we are allowed to say what we think, and we are encouraged to respect one another’s opinions.

The Alpha course was originally put together by a Church of England vicar, but it is a programme used by all different kinds of churches around the world.


Please get in touch to find out the venue of our next course.

Can anyone do Alpha?

Our Alpha course is open to everyone or any faith or background.  It’s particularly suitable for those who are exploring the Christian faith for the first time or re-discovering something they were taught as a child.  Alpha is also great if you think you have recently discovered God, and you want to understand more about following Jesus.
