Over 27 million people worldwide have now attended an Alpha course, an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment, running in tens of thousands of churches, coffee shops, bars and homes across the world.

No pressure, no charge, no follow up.


"What Alpha offers, and what is 
attracting thousands of  people, is 
permission, rare in secular culture, 
to discuss the big questions:
life, death and their meaning" 
The Guardian

ALPHA LAUNCHES at 7pm on Wednesday 31st JANUARY 2018 at St Swithin’s Church, LN2 1HA.

When you arrive, our team will welcome you, we’ll eat a light and tasty meal together and watch a short film introducing Alpha and exploring  “Is there is more to life than this?”.

We’ll then have coffee and cake and bat around our thoughts and ideas in small groups.

The evening is free and anyone is welcome.         


THE COURSE then CONTINUES each Wednesday evening for 8 weeks, from 7pm-8:45 @ St Swithin’s Church. Join us for food each week, a short film and plenty of opportunity to bat around your opinions, thoughts and questions, in smaller group over coffee and cake.

The course is free* and anyone is welcome.          

(*But you would of course be welcome to make a small contribution towards the cost of the food each evening).
