Alpha at St James’s

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Alpha is for everyone, both church goers and those who have never been in a church before.

We currently have a course running via Zoom. To find out about our next course, or to find out more information, please contact us at

Curious about what a session at Alpha looks like? Read below, to disover more about the course.


I’ve been a Catholic all my life,  but there were things I learnt on Alpha that I had never heard before! Alpha really helped strengthen my faith and relationship with God.
