Like all our other meetings, we've taken our Alpha course online. Starting on Wednesday 27th May at 8pm, we have an eight week Alpha course. Meetings and discussion will be via Zoom on a weekly basis and last around an hour.

Please join us to ask your big questions and explore the Christian faith.

For information please email us at

A series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.

What is Alpha?

Alpha is an internationally recognised course. In churches, homes, prisons and coffee shops across the world, people get together to 'do Alpha'. They come to hear about the Christian faith and ask their questions:

Who is Jesus? And why should it matter to me?
Is the Bible true?
Isn't Christianity just another religion?
If God is real and he loves people, why is there so much evil in the world?

What to expect

At City Hope we hold Alpha courses in various venues and at various times, typically eight sessions over eight weeks.

See the website calendar for dates of current Alpha course.

I believe the Alpha course touches lives. I have seen so many people find a personal relationship with God and a quiet strength in their life after doing the course – me included – and it takes a proud man to say he never needs any help. Alpha is a non pressured and fun course, and it shows how Christianity can be relevant and empowering to our lives. Bear Grylls, TV Adventurer
What Alpha offers and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions – life and death and their meaning. The Guardian
