Believing in God is rarely straightforward

Sometimes we wrestle with questions, doubts, objections and scepticism around the Christian faith. Whether you consider yourself searching, spiritual or sceptical (or all three) we want to provide a place for you to process your questions, doubts and beliefs in a way that works for you.

Below are three fantastic ways you can explore. Take a look now.

The Alpha Course

Explore life, faith and meaning

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore life, faith and meaning. The Alpha course enables you to do that. 

The next Alpha course will be starting at King's on the 7th February 2018.

What is Alpha

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

First up there's

Food

Whether it's a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It's no different at Alpha. Every session starts with food because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Then a

Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about eleven weeks, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Followed by

Discussion

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Podcast 1 - Belief in God is out of date and old fashioned

Podcast 2 - God doesn't care about my suffering, otherwise he'd stop it

Podcast 3 - It's up to heaven (if you're good) or down to hell (if you're bad)
