Alpha Course

Is there more to life than this? 

Explore the big questions of life, faith, and meaning during the internationally renowned Alpha course held at St Mark’s.

Through Alpha you will be able to meet some new people and discuss some big issues that might change your life and eternity in the company of other people who are also seeking answers.

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith. Whether you’re just checking it out, new to faith, or coming back to church, you are invited. The next Alpha Course will be held on Thursday 1 August 2024, 7pm-8.45pm and will run for six weeks.

I am interested in attending the Alpha Course in 2024

There is no fee for the Alpha Course.


What can I expect?

  1. Connect: You will get to connect with other people just like you, looking to explore the big questions in life
  2. Watch: Each week guests will watch a short film and then have a facilitated conversation exploring a topic such as “Is there more to life than this?” or “How can I have faith?”
  3. Discuss: You get a chance to share your thoughts and ideas on the topic. Also, hear from others in an honest, friendly and open environment. There will be the chance to ask any questions you have.
