Alpha is a Christian discipleship course offered by churches for people of faith or no faith which helps them explore some of the big questions of life, that we all have from time to time......Is there more to life than this? How can I be happy? Who and what can I trust? Why is there so much suffering in the world? etc.
It is offered in 100 countries (and in 100 languages) globally each year and to date over 24 million people have attended a course. It runs in prisons, youth centres and community halls, as well as churches. It started in an Anglican church, but has been embraced by all of the major world Christian denominations. It is a free course; there's no charge.
The format is a relaxed, non-threatening set of sessions where course attendees watch a 25 minute DVD presentation each week and then chat over some set questions in groups of about 10 people. It usually starts with a simple meal which helps those folk who arrive straight from work to grab a bite to eat ahead of the session starting.
