Over 11 million people worldwide have attended an Alpha course, an opportunity to explore the meaning of life, now running in tens of thousands of churches of all denominations. Click here for Alpha USA's website.
At an Alpha course, people explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over ten thought-provoking weekly sessions.
It is low-key, friendly and fun – and is supported by all the main Christian denominations.
