The Alpha Course

Who is the course for?

The course is for anyone, those with or without faith and experience of the Christian faith. We at Cornerstone believe everyone has the right and chance to explore the Christian faith, to be able to ask any question (no question is ever to left field) and share their points of view without fear of judgement in an informal, friendly and open environment. We believe becoming a Christian is a personal choice and so will not force anything upon you.

What is the purpose of the course and what is it based on?

In a world where we are fed with fake news and constant social media updates it can seem rather chaotic to know what truth is. Alpha allows you to take time out and focus on the bigger questions on life, faith, reason, God and meaning.

How is the course structured?

The course is delivered over a 10 week period with an away day towards the end.

A typical evening starts with a hot meal shared together, it’s a great way to socialise and get to know each other.

We then watch a talk, which is usually 30 minutes long; They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Afterwards we separate into smaller groups so we can share our thoughts and reflections on the topics in the video. There is no obligation to say anything, you can come along to just listen. It’s a chance to hear from others own perspective and experience, Even Christian’s aren’t perfect!
