The Alpha Course

Upper Eden Baptist Church are very much looking forward to hosting an Alpha course this autumn. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

The evening will start with a free meal followed by a 30-minute video presentation. There will then be an opportunity to share thoughts and ideas on the topic. There is no obligation to say anything but equally, there is nothing you cannot say. It is a great opportunity to speak honestly and hear other people’s views in a friendly and open environment.

Over the eight weeks of the course we will explore big questions around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity including;

  • 10th Oct. Is there more to life than this?
  • 17th Oct Who is Jesus?
  • 24th Oct. No Alpha–half-term break
  • 31st Oct. Why did Jesus die?
  • 7th Nov. How can I have faith?
  • 14th Nov. Why and how do I pray?
  • 21st Nov. Why and how should I read the Bible?
  • 28th Nov. How does God guide us?

If you would like to attend just come along and please feel free to invite friends. We will have great food for you and you will be made very welcome. Email us ( or call Ashley on 07973 842690 if you need more details.
