The Alpha Course


What is the Alpha Course?



The Alpha Course is an 8 week introduction to the message of Jesus. Participants gather, enjoy some tea/coffee and treats and listen to a presentation lasting around 25 minutes. They then break into smaller groups to discuss the presentation and raise any questions they may have concerning the topic introduced by it. 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?

Week 8 – What about the Church?

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.
