Alpha Courses happen in churches all around the world.

The Alpha Course looks at different aspects of the Christian faith; each session includes time for discussion.

Alpha Courses are relaxed, low key, and friendly – that’s probably why over 19 million people around the world have done Alpha!

Courses at Papanui Baptist include;

  • Lunches or Dinners
  • Stimulating Conversation
  • Making new friends

There is no charge for The Alpha Course.

To learn more, come to an Introductory Alpha meal, next course runs Thursdays, 25th September to 13th November. Evenings begin with dinner at 6:30pm.
