The Alpha course is a course which provides people with an opportunity to explore the meaning of life by introducing the basics of the Christian faith through a series of informal talks and discussions.

Each session looks at a different question and is assigned to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same – they are run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes.

– there’s no pressure
– and there’s no charge.

It’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.


Beachlands Baptist Church runs our Alpha Course over seven sessions with each session being 2 hours long. We hold Alpha on Sunday afternoons so that families can attend.  We provide a meal and childcare.
