What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha offers permission, which is rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions life and death and their meaning.

Developed as a short course at Holy Trinity Brompton in 1990, Rev Nicky Gumbel took over running Alpha and found that many people outside of the church wanted to explore the Christian faith. Now over 29 million people have tried Alpha in 169 countries, and it has been translated into 112 different languages.

We run Alpha courses every year at Trinity Rawdon. They are free and everyone’s welcome.
