The Alpha course is one of the most popular and successful Christian courses in the world. MBC has consistently offered the Alpha course over many years resulting in many being better informed about Christianity and Jesus Christ. We’ve also seen vast amounts of people begin a relationship with Jesus. The Alpha course is a course which seeks to explore the basics of the Christian faith, described as “an opportunity to explore the meaning of life”.


The Alpha course is organised as a series of sessions over 10 weeks, typically preceded by an ‘Alpha Supper’ which often includes the talk “Is there more to life than this?” and with a day or weekend away which includes three or four of the talks. Some of the topics include:

Is there more to life than this?

Who is Jesus?

Why did Jesus die?

Why and how should I read the Bible?

How can I resist evil?

What about the church?

How can I make the most of the rest of my life?
