The Alpha Course

So what’s it all about then…?

Real 'men' do Alpha!A course that’s impacted millions across the world. Here in Dorchester we have seen people find answers to their questions, many commenting on how the course has helped them to find real purpose in their lives.

A great opportunity to “discover the meaning of life”. It is very informal. Light refreshments are followed by a 30 minute presentation on a specific subject, such as

“What about suffering?” or “Can we trust the Bible?”

People then move to into their small groups to discuss the subject further.

There is no pressure on anyone to say anything, and no-one has to pray or sing either, and ‘Alpha’ is FREE. Some people want to make a small contribution towards the food, and that’s fine. There is also a small selection of books available for purchase.
