What is Alpha?
Alpha is a 9 week course exploring the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create good conversation. Topics covered include, ‘Is There More to Life Than This?’, ‘Who is Jesus?’ And ‘Why and How Do I Pray?’
What will happen each week?
Each week you will join a Zoom call with the other Alpha guests and leaders on the course. Together you will watch the weekly Alpha episode. This is an engaging 25-minute video which focuses on a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. Watch the Alpha Film Series trailer below to get a taste of the videos.
Following the Alpha video there will be a time of facilitated discussion in small groups. This is where you will get to hear from others in your group and contribute your own perspective in an honest, open and friendly environment.
What do I need to participate in Alpha Online?
You will need an internet connection and a device to connect with. This can be a computer, laptop, iPad, tablet or even a smart phone. It will need to have a webcam and microphone so we can see and hear you.

Have a read of what some of our previous Alpha Online guests said about their experience of doing Alpha with Life Church Bath.
My friend told me about Alpha and recommended me to go on it, so I did and never looked back! Alpha has been a wonderful course which has helped me answer those big life questions - What on earth am I here for? And after 9 weeks of friendship and plenty of cups of tea it has spiritually grown me and clarified the true meaning of life. Give it a go, you have nothing to lose!

For a long time I have wanted to do the Alpha Course and was delighted the opportunity came to sign up last year. I really enjoyed being part of a great group of people and really enjoyed the weekly videos and the topics for discussion. Since completing the Alpha Course I have had a greater understanding of what it means to be in a relationship with Jesus and have since joined two Life Groups at Life Church Bath.

I met some amazing like minded people who I would now call friends. It was also great to be able to ask questions openly to the alpha team to further my knowledge of God and how he works!

Having always had so many questions and no answers has always held me back and stopped me from letting and inviting Jesus into my heart, which is something that I fought against daily. I was doubtful but entered Alpha open-minded, and am now thankful every day that I started this journey, as the videos and testimonies were inspiring, eye opening and answered more questions than I knew I had. I have now invited Jesus into my life and it has been forever changed, I will never regret this decision as I have been fulfilled and uplifted by love. It is unimaginable until you experience it for yourself. So if you want more from your life or have questions Alpha is a brilliant place to start or to renew your faith.
