This is a practical introduction to the Christian faith. It is designed for non-churchgoers and newer Christians alike, or those simply wanting to re-establish the fundamentals. It was established at Holy Trinity Brompton twenty years ago and there are now more than 5000 Alpha courses all over the UK and overseas. It is cast as a non-threatening introduction to the Gospel, based on ex-atheist Nicky Gumbel's books and is used by churches around the world.
The course is composed of ten sessions with an optional week-end away to focus on the Holy Spirit. Each session is preceded with dinner, a dvd presentation and followed by group discussions.
