The Alpha Course

Alpha is a worldwide phenomenon. It’s found in over 160 countries. It’s run in tens of thousands of schools, prisons, homes and churches of all denominations. It’s given more than 20 million people the opportunity to explore the meaning of life. More that 250 adults have participated in Alpha at Beacon and each one can tell you how impactful the course is.

Beacon runs the Alpha Course a few times a year. The course explores life in general and covers the basics of Christianity. It answers questions like: "Who is Jesus?", "Why & how do we read the Bible?" and "Why did Jesus have to die?" The Alpha course at Beacon includes 8 weekly sessions, with a single Saturday seminar in the middle. At each of the weeknight sessions, guests gather for two hours. They share an informal meal, watch a video about how Christianity approaches the question at hand, then gather into small groups for discussion.

This winter, Beacon will be hosting the Alpha Course on Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm, starting January 16th. The course will meet for 8 sessions, wrapping up March 13th. The Saturday Seminar will take place on March 2nd.

No matter where you are in your faith journey, the Alpha Course is the perfect next step for you!
