What is the Alpha Course?

Each year the Christian Union Committee at Senior School organise an Alpha Course for their fellow students. This exciting course focuses on the basics of Christianity and looking at the true meaning of life. Over 50 students started the course this term and will meet weekly on Saturdays. The course will culminate in a weekend away at Kembu Cottages, during the Trinity Term.
 
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, schools, universities, homes – you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
