What is Alpha? Typically, Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view.

Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

On Thursday 11th January 2018, 7.30pm at St Johns, Hook we will be running an Alpha course ‘taster evening’. If you are new to the Christian faith or have questions about life or know someone who maybe interested please contact

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in an informal, fun and friendly environment. The Alpha course consists of a series of talks, looking at topics including ‘Who is Jesus?’ and ‘Why and how do I pray?’, and includes a day away. We usually begin with food and each talk is followed by discussion in small groups.

Alpha runs over a number of weeks. You don't have to come to the whole course - just pop along and see what you think. No pressure.

Why attend the Alpha course?

Some people want to investigate whether God exists; others are concerned about what happens after death. Some people have particular questions that they would like to discuss; others want to understand other peoples' beliefs or would like to explore what the purpose of life is. Many have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.

So come, relax, eat, share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life.
