What is it?
What is the point of life?
What happens when we die?
Is forgiveness possible?
What relevance does Jesus have for our lives today?

The Alpha course is an opportunity for everyone to explore the Christian faith. It's relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun. There is a meal together at the beginning of every session which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other. Listen, learn, discuss, and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile. And it's supported by all the main Christian denominations.

What's involved?
The Alpha course consists of a series of talks looking at topics such as 'Who is Jesus?' and 'Why and how do I pray?' After each talk we divide into small groups for a time of discussion.

Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone, especially:

Those wanting to investigate Christianity.
New Christians.
Newcomers to the church.
Those who want to brush up on the basics.

What will it cost?
There is no charge for the Alpha course, although you may be asked to make a contribution towards food.


Alpha at Christ Church

New Alpha courses begin at intervals throughout the year, with the first meeting of each course being an informal social gathering where everyone can get to know each other and share in some tasty refreshments.

If you are within travelling distance of the Eccles/Salford area and are interested in attending, please contact us. You don't have to be a member of the church, and you won't be committed to attending Christ Church. All are welcome.
