The Alpha course is open to everyone interested in discovering what Christianity is about. Come, relax, eat, share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life. It’s designed primarily for people who aren't churchgoers and each course is open to everyone who would like to attend.

If you're interested in coming (that's addressed to anyone reading this!) please email or call the office - or just turn up!

There are now over 33,500 courses worldwide in 163 countries and it is supported by all the major denominations. Guests do Alpha for a wide variety of reasons – some want to investigate whether God exists; others are concerned about what happens after death. Some people have particular questions that they would like to discuss; others want to understand other peoples' beliefs or would like to explore what the purpose of life is. Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.

Grace Church runs Alpha courses regularly and if you would like to know more or to register for the up-coming course, contact us: or use the contact form on this page.

What people say about Alpha

‘What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions – life and death and their meaning’
The Guardian, London

‘What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going relaxed feel of the proceedings – that and its astonishing success.’
The Times, London

‘It will take you on a journey and I suspect you will not regret it.’
Andy Duncan, former Chief Executive of Channel 4
