The Alpha Course

What happens at the MCC Alpha Course – online version?

The Alpha Course in MCC runs for around 10 weeks and is a relaxed and enjoyable introduction to the message of Jesus. Since we are in unique circumstances these days, with the impact of Covid-19, we are currently running our Courses online with the aid of ZOOM. Using the link or Meeting ID below we assemble online in a ZOOM call, watch an Alpha video presentation that lasts around 20-25 minutes. We then use Zoom to enjoy a discussion together on the presentation and any questions that may have arisen for those watching. It’s as simple as that.

The basic outline of the Course is as follows:

Week 1 – Introduction: Is there more to life than this?

Week 2 – Who is Jesus?

 Week 3 – Why did Jesus Die?

 Week 4 –  How can we have Faith?

 Week 5 – Why and how should I Pray?

 Week 6 – How and Why should I read the Bible?

 Week 7 – Who is the Holy Spirit?

 Weeks 8-10 – What is the Church and what does Jesus teaching mean for us today?

 You can find out more information about the Alpha Course on its Irish website ( or just by googling it on your PC. The ‘What is Alpha?’ section on the official website is particularly helpful.
