"What am I doing here?"

At sometime in our life, most of us ask a question like this. Alpha provides an opportunity to explore this and other "questions of life" and to find out the Christian response to them. Over 10 weeks, in an informal and relaxed setting, you will have the opportunity to express your opinions and ideas, and ask any question without being criticised or corrected. Alpha is open to everyone, wherever you are on the spiritual journey. See for more information.

Launch Event

We offer a taste of what the Alpha Course is like each year with a launch event. The next launch event is Thursday 14th January 2016 at the Spice Valley Restaurant behind Coxeter House in Abingdon. See for details and to book.
