What is the Alpha Course?

The Alpha Course consists of ten weekly evening sessions  exploring the Christian faith.
Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.
This course is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life.

Alpha Online


Alpha will be run online for the first time at New Life Church! We invite you to join us in exploring life’s big questions. We will be using the online Cisco Webex Meetings platform to host our first online Alpha course. There won’t be a dinner to share, but we hope that this will give people the opportunity to join us online with less limitations and a greater opportunity to connect from anywhere!


These are presented by way of the Alpha Film Series DVDs which are about 25 minutes long. We will be sharing the videos online each week. The sessions explore the big questions around faith and the basics of Christianity. The questions include “Who is Jesus?”, “How can we have faith?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”.

Small Groups

Small group discussion time presents an opportunity to chat about thoughts and ideas on the specific evening’s topic. We will create “break away rooms” of about 15 people online for each group to have their discussion after the video. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously!). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and add your own perspectives in an honest, respectful and open environment.
To date it is estimated that over 30 million people worldwide have done the Alpha Course.
The Alpha resources are printed in over 112 languages and the course is run in over 170 countries.
