What is Alpha?

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to ask the big questions of life.

What is my purpose? What happens when I die? Why is there suffering?

Alpha is a chance to ask these big questions and explore the Christian faith in a fun, non-pressurised environment. Each in-person session includes a meal, short film and and discussion where you can share what you think with a small group of people in a safe space.

The next Alpha at Union Church begins this autumn. We have 3 options for you!
