Alpha is an opportunity to explore questions of faith and the meaning of life.

no pressure // no follow up // no charge.

We're excited that Alpha will be running on Wednesdays from 2 May, at either 11am or 7pm at Harbour Church Portsmouth. For more information, please contact us here. Or you can sign up here.

What is Alpha?

You may be surprised to know that a staggering 27 million people worldwide have now attended an Alpha course. Alpha is for anyone to explore the Christian faith, no matter what their background or beliefs, and is currently running in tens of thousands of churches of all denominations across the globe.

‘What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions: life, death and their meaning’

The Guardian

What’s involved?

Typically, Alpha has ten sessions over ten weeks. This year we are running a morning and an evening Alpha. The morning starts at 11am with breakfast and finishes by 12:30pm. The evening starts at 7pm, with a dinner and we’re always finished by 9pm because we know you lead busy lives! There’s a short presentation on the Christian faith at both the morning and evening and a chance to discuss the talk if you’d like to. 

There is also a day away mid-way through Alpha with a chance to get to know those in your group better, learn more about Christianity and enjoy food, fun activities and even some homegrown entertainment.

You don’t have to come to the whole thing – just pop along for the first night and see what you think. We’d love to meet you.
