Find out about Alpha


Why not come to one of our one off ‘Introduction to Alpha Meals’. Coming to these does not mean that you are signing up to the course but it will give you a flavour of the food, meet some other people and find out what you might learn from an Alpha course.

Please contact one of the Clergy for the next dates. Comments about last years course included.
“It has been so good to meet so many new friends and to explore different ideas and thoughts.”
“What a journey I was sceptical at first but I don’t want it to end”
“ I feel the atmosphere was friendly and non-threatening and therefore easy to discuss issues and raise questions”.

The next full series of Alpha starts on Tuesday 21st October 2008 at 7.30 pm in the St. Andrew’s Centre, Parsonage Street, Halstead (opposite the Church). If you need more information please have a word with the Revd Geoff Bayliss on 01787 273434

What is Alpha?

  • The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith.
  • It's relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun.
  • There is a meal together at the beginning of each session which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other.
  • Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
  • And it's supported by all the main Christian denominations.
