What Is Alpha?

Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course is once a week for 10 weeks.  Sessions will begin with a meal, followed by a short video and time to discuss what’s been taught in each session.

During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered hostile or too simple.  Questions might include – Is there a God?  Why am I here?  Where did I come from?  Where am I going?  Plus any questions you may have wanted to ask for years but have never had the opportunity, now’s your chance.

Watch Online

If you can’t make it to CRBC on a Thursday don’t worry, you can watch the videos here. There are some guide questions for you too. You can always contact us to ask more questions or find out how you can come along to the next week.
