If you have questions about God, Jesus and the Christian faith, we hope we can help you!
We currently run two courses at Hope. The Alpha Course which is for those wanting to ask questions find out more about Christianity, and School of Supernatural Life which is for those who are Christians but want to learn to develop the gifts God has given them.
The Alpha Course
What is Alpha?
The Alpha course is open to everyone interested in discovering what Christianity is about. It's a place where people can come and relax, eat, share thoughts and explore the meaning of life.
Who is Alpha for?
The Alpha course is designed primarily for people who aren't churchgoers or those who are new to church or young in the Christian faith but is open to anyone who would like to attend.
Why Attend the Alpha Course?
Guests come on the Alpha course for many different reasons; some want to investigate whether God exists and some have questions about life they'd like to discuss.
Who comes to Alpha?
Alpha attracts a diverse range of guests of different ages and backgrounds, holding many different viewpoints.
The Course Format
The Alpha course usually lasts for ten weeks. Each session begins with a meal, then a short talk looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion, when guests can ask any questions and contribute their opinions. It’s a great opportunity to explore and learn together.
