Alpha at St G's


Want to come and ask questions about faith in a safe, relaxed space? Alpha is a series that explores the basics of the Christian faith in a welcoming, open and friendly environment. It’s free and

there’s no pressure or follow up. Each session we’ll hear about different topics on Christianity and have time to chat through any thoughts. You can say anything you like or nothing at all.


Everyone’s welcome. No matter your background or beliefs, you’re invited. #TryAlpha #stgeorgeswilton

The course consists of ten sessions plus an away-day and while you benefit most from attending everything, it is not essential to do so. During Alpha we will look at the following themes: 


What's involved?


Each session begins at 7.00pm with a meal followed by a theme talk. After a coffee break we divide into small groups to discuss issues raised by the talk. People contribute to the discussion in whatever way they feel comfortable and no question is regarded as too hostile or too simple.
