There are many courses designed to help us explore and grow in our understanding of the truth of the Christian faith, and to question its relevance to each one of us.

Alpha began in its current format in 1990 and by 2018 the course has been run in over 100 countries and over 100 languages, with over 24 million people having taken part. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith which has been very well received over the years here in Mickleham, connecting with people in a relevant and apposite manner.  

The context for each session follows a well tried and tested pattern, usually starting with a shared meal together followed by a talk, often using a DVD, and discussion relating to the topic. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to stimulate and create conversation.


Alpha has proven to be a tremendous help to many Christians. Many people have come to faith in Jesus Christ through the Alpha Course, whilst many more have been strengthened in their faith and knowledge of God’s Word because of Alpha.
