Do you have some questions about Alpha? if so check out our frequently asked questions below by tapping on the + button to Explore.

When is Alpha?

Alpha runs every Wednesday night at 7PM from 8 August to 10 October 2018.

How long does the evening last?

Alpha will run for about 2 hours, and will include dinner, a few songs, video teaching and discussion.

Can I bring my children?

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to come and invite friends to Alpha. We will have teens and adults looking after your children in three different rooms every Wednesday evening.There will be a room to do homework in, a room for kids to sleep in and then a room where a fun movie will be playing. The children will be in the ministry rooms in the office block and the baby room will be available for parents with children younger than 2 years old.  Your kids will be checked in before Alpha starts and checked out at the end of the evening to ensure that your children are safe. Please bring along pillows and blankets so that your children can be nice and cosy during the evening.

Will there be a programme for teenagers on Wednesday night?

There will be a room available for your teenagers to do their homework and a room for them to simply hangout together. There will also be many opportunities for those who are willing to serve during the night. There will be a special Youth Alpha programme running on Friday nights.

When will the Youth Alpha take place?

We all want to see the next generation grow up and follow in the ways of the Lord but the world today has made it so difficult for Tweens and Teens to do just that. That’s why we will be running Youth Alpha for all grade 6-7s (in the downstairs chapel) & HighSchool students (in the Upstairs Loft) on Friday nights starting on the 3rd of August.

What will be happening in Youth Alpha?

Here the Tweens and Teens will be able to wrestle with life most difficult questions in a fun and safe environment. If you know any Grade 6-7’s or HighSchool students make sure they don’t miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime!

How can I be involved?

Every 40 Day Journey we encourage everyone in the church to consider leading a group in their homes and workplace. This Alpha Journey is no exception.

We are looking for 30+ people to be willing to lead a group on Wednesday nights here at the church during the journey. All it requires from you during the night is for you to simply ask questions provided to you for each night and to ensure that each person can share their thoughts and questions freely within the group.

If you are interested in leading a group please contact Jason at
