Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.

Wadhurst Church runs Alpha courses at different times of the year. If you are interested let us know and we can let you know when the next session is planned. Typically Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.

Alpha really is for anyone who’s curious. The talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment.

The Story So Far …

Alpha began as an introduction to the Christian faith for new Christians attending Holy Trinity Brompton church in central London. When curate Nicky Gumbel took over the running of Alpha at HTB in 1990, he noticed its appeal to those who would not describe themselves as Christians. Alpha became increasingly popular and, after the first training conference for church leaders in 1993, began running in other churches in the UK and around the world. Alpha currently runs in 169 countries and in 112 languages.

Wadhurst Church have been running Alpha courses, both during the day and on week nights for many years. Contact us if you’d like to join a group.
