Explore the Christian faith with Alpha

A chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share your point of view.

GCC Alpha Course will run every Monday at 7pm for twelve weeks, starting Monday 24th April. Each session looks at a different question that people can have about faith and is designed to create conversation. It's just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life's big questions together.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.

Topics Covered on Alpha

The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. Around thirty minutes long, they might be a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?
