The Alpha Course


A place where you can explore why you’re here & ask all of your questions

The Alpha course has helped millions of people to explore the meaning of life and is completely free.

I’ve seen Alpha touch so many people over the years. I’ve seen it encourage people to find a very simple faith.

The King's Arms Alpha CourseWhat People Say About Alpha

Doing an Alpha Course is challenging and serious fun, even if you’re a dyed-in-the-wool atheist like me.

Deborah Orr, Journalist

I felt like this was going to be a place where I could ask questions and not feel afraid about asking them.

Danny De Lillo, London

We had everything we wanted but there was something missing. I had a lot of questions and I decided Alpha was the way to answer them.

Colin Burns, Glasgow

Everyone was very relaxed and it was very free from pressure. It completely opened my eyes.

Rob Harrop, Hampshire

We were so suspicious that we sat in the car watching people going in to Alpha. To our astonishment they looked normal It was great to ask questions that I’d probably carried with me for years without having to worry about sounding stupid or shocking, or about seeming not very knowledgeable or extremely naughty or any of these things.

Jo Glen, London

Alpha is fantastic because it explains it so simply and you go, “Wow, why didn’t I think of that?

Bobby Ball, Comedian

Nobody Can Give You the Answers

You’ve probably stumbled onto our page because you want more from life. It goes without saying, but finding answers is a process which is different for each of us. Nobody can tell you the answers nor would you want them to. YOU need to find them, test them, see if you feel comfortable with them.
