there’s no Alpha running at B&A right now, click below to find out about the next one



Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different area of our faith and is designed to create conversation.


We believe that exploring is good – everyone should have the chance to ask questions, share their point of view and explore the Christian faith.

Whether you have no experience of faith, or you grew up in a church – Alpha is for you! It’s for the questioners, the cynics and the sceptics, whether you have loads of chat or prefer to listen, everyone’s invited!


Alpha at B&A is held in B&A St Andrews Park.

It lasts for about 2 hours, but people often head somewhere afterwards to continue the conversation. The time of day and day of the week is different from one Alpha to the next — we’re mid-way through an Alpha right now, to find out when the next one will be, click the buttons at the top of this page.


Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes – you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Alpha at B&A starts with some food and a chance to get to know people and catch up with each other.

The person leading will introduce a short talk – we’ll be watching through the Alpha Film Series. The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Next it’s time for discussion. This is probably the most important part of Alpha and is a chance for anyone and everyone to share thoughts and ideas about the topic. No-one has to say anything and there are no taboo things that you can’t say – for real! It’s a chance to find out other’s opinions and share your own in an open, honest and safe setting, it’s a time when everyone can be real with each other and explore more together.
