Got questions about God? Never really understood Christianity? Maybe you gave up on it a long time ago? Alpha was designed for you or anyone curious about the Christian Faith.

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions, exploring the challenging questions about life and faith in a relaxed and informal environment. Sometimes it's easier not to ask questions, but on Alpha everyone is encouraged to say what they think and ask whatever questions they want.

Each session includes a meal, a short talk and discussion. At any point, if you think Alpha isn't for you, that's not a problem. There's no pressure, no follow up and no charge.

Topics covered include:

  • Who is Jesus?

  • Why did Jesus die?

  • Why the Bible?

  • What about the church?

  • Why and how should I pray?

27 million people have been on Alpha in 169 countries and 112 languages! Why not give it a try? #TryAlpha

Alpha Taster Evening

Monday 14th October 7.00pm - 10.00pm

Ever thought about asking someone on the course but don't really know how it runs?

Come and experience one full Alpha evening, especially for people who are already part of Sutton Vineyard, so that you know what you're inviting a friend to when we run our full Alpha Course in January.

The session will start with a meal followed by a short video and discussion.

Faith basics

Wednesday 30th October, 6th November and 13th November 7.45pm

Ask yourself, “Do I choose to believe in Christianity just because it feels right, or am I compelled to because of clear evidence and logical reasoning? Or am I not too sure? Would I be able to give a clear reply to a relative or a friend who says ‘Obviously it was all just made up hundreds of years ago, before we had science, when everyone was superstitious!’”.

This short course which is equally suitable for long-established Christians or those who are ‘just looking’, draws on essential factual material from the Alpha Course and other sources to underpin a firm foundation for faith in Jesus as Son of God and Saviour, and in the authenticity of the Bible.
