Searching for the meaning of life. That is Alpha. During ten interactive informal sessions you will get to know the Christian faith.

Meeting, discussing and discovering – that’s what happens on Alpha! Ask all your questions and discuss several interesting topics with the other participants. You are not the only Alpha participant; world-wide over 25 million people have joined an Alpha course. Within the Netherlands over 325.000 people have done the course.

For whom?

Alpha is for everyone! Do you have questions about life? Or about the Christian faith? Then Alpha is for you! You will get the chance to discuss, share and ask all your questions, ideas and beliefs.


On Alpha, you will discuss fifteen inspiring topics. Everyone can ask his or her questions and bring in his or her own ideas. You will always discover something new. You will meet lovely new people. And it’s free!

How does it work?

Every Alpha starts with a shared meal. This is the moment to relax and get to know eachother. After the meal there will be an inspiring video (~30 min) about the topics discussed that evening. Afterwards there is time to discuss and share thoughts in small groups.

There will be about ten Alpa sessions and an Alpha day or weekend. The exact numbere of sessions depends per course and will be discussed in the first session. Each session a different topic will be discussed. These are, among others:

  • Is there more?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Praying: why and how?
  • Reading the Bible: why and how?
  • What about church?
