Free series of sessions exploring life’s big questions

Online Alpha is a series of free online sessions giving you the opportunity to discuss the big questions of life and explore the Christian faith with others in a friendly and informal environment. In each session you will watch, together with others, an episode focusing on a different issue. The short films will inspire conversation and questions as you share in a group discussion.

About the Online Alpha Course

We are running an Online Alpha Course right now (6 April – 25 May) at 19:00 on Tuesdays, with the possibility to join for three followup sessions in June). One can just try the first session and see what they think. Everyone’s welcome and there’s no pressure, follow up or charge.

Each session takes place over video chat on Zoom where you’ll meet other people with questions just like yours. We will watch a 25 minute film together that’s designed to inspire questions.

At the end of each session there’s an open discussion where you can share your thoughts in small groups. Your group will have a host and a helper, who are members of St. Stephen’s Comely Bank Church.

If you are interested or have any questions, please don’t hesitate contacting us at
