What is Alpha?
Alpha is a non-pressurised opportunity to explore the meaning of life in an atmosphere which is relaxed, friendly and enjoyable. The course is designed primarily for people who don’t go to church or who haven’t been to church in a long time and are interested in exploring what the christian faith is all about.
The course starts with a meal at the beginning of each session, followed by a short presentation and then small group discussion. In the groups no question is too simple or too hostile to ask!
The Alpha course in Keswick consists of 9 sessions looking at topics such as Who is Jesus? Why and how to pray? How to read the Bible? It is usually on a Thursday evening with one Saturday.

“I met people from all walks of life.”
What does it cost?
Alpha is free. However people are welcome to make a small contribution to the cost of the meal should they wish.
