What is Alpha?

The Alpha course is a ten week practical introduction to the Christian faith. It is designed primarily for non-churchgoers and those who have recently become Christians.
Anyone Find out more about the Christian faith.  People of all ages are welcome.
Learning and laughter It is possible to learn about the Christian faith and have fun at the same time.
Pasta and pudding Eating a meal together gives people an opportunity to get to know each other.
Helping one another The small groups give you a chance to discuss issues raised in the talks.
Ask anything Alpha is a place where no question is regarded as too simple or hostile.

All are welcome to attend this exploration of the basics of the Christian faith. For more info, call Ed Hird at (604)- 929-5350. This course is offered 3 times a year, and has been taken by over 3,800,000 people around the world. Check out Ed's three published Alpha articles:
