The Alpha Course

Please Note: The new start date for our next course is Tuesday 1st February – we’ve delayed it a few weeks due to the COVID situation.

What is Alpha?

Alpha is an interactive course that explores the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.

You can watch a short video about it here

Who is it for?

You don’t need to be ‘religious’ or have any church experience. Alpha is for anyone who is interested in discovering more about life and the Christian faith. No question is out of bounds and you are as free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. Millions have done Alpha worldwide, including many local people here in Glossop and nearby.

How does it work?

Each week, we have a chat, watch a video (which gives a Christian perspective on life and faith), and then share any thoughts or questions we have.

The first week is an introduction – so you can try it and see what you think. After that, we continue for 10 sessions with the option of a longer Day Away near the middle of the course.

At any point, if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s no problem. There’s no pressure, no charge.

When is it?

We will be running Alpha on Tuesday evenings from January 2022.

When? Starting on Tuesday 1st February from 7.30-9.15pm with an introductory session

Where? The Vineyard, 18 Charlestown Road, Glossop SK13 8JN

Each week will start with light refreshments (tea, coffee etc)
