FPCSM has been running the Alpha program since 2012. It’s a free course for people who don’t describe themselves as Christian, or who might have doubts and questions about their faith. 

Alpha is a group of people who come together over a weekly dinner for ten weeks to share their stories, concerns and thoughts about Christianity, Jesus and God. No question is off limits. The course is non-denominational. There is no pressure and no follow up. 

You won’t be asked to pray, or share unless you want to. The conversation will be fun, safe and respectful. You’ll meet in the same small groups every week so you’ll feel comfortable.

We know how it feels to have questions. If you want find out more please email louise_griffin@rocketmail.com 

You can find out more about Alpha here www.alphausa.org.

At the heart of every Alpha Course is the opportunity to make friends and meet interesting people, and we think the best place for that to happen is around some great food. With that in mind, Alpha events involve eating together around a table of 8 to 12 people.
 
Every week we listen to a short talk exploring the Christian faith, where we’ll address questions such as “Who is Jesus?” and “Why and how do I pray?” The talks are fun and engaging (think TED talks), and they create the framework for the discussion that follows.
 
During the group discussions, no question or opinion is out of bounds and you’re free to discuss as much or as little as you’d like. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the conversation. We don’t assume any particular belief or background knowledge in Christianity.
