There are trillions of Google searches each year. Google Trends revealed that Aussie's wanted to know 'Who Jesus is' more than anyone else! Obviously, this is an important and relevant question for us today!
It seems though that everyone has an opinion on who Jesus is. Many say Jesus is irrelevant, outdated and not for me. Others will say he is just a good bloke with great teaching like ‘turn the other cheek’ or ‘love your neighbour’. So who is he and how can we know?
In amongst all the opinion, we believe the bible gives us the best way of knowing who Jesus is and the importance of what he has done for the world, and what this means for us today.
Jesus is God himself, and came to earth as a human being. He lived a perfect life; was crucified on a cross and three days later came back to life. He came to restore and put everything right again - the world and humanity - by setting up a Kingdom marked by love and justice and inviting people in. Through his life, death and life again, He paved the way for you to enjoy a relationship with God and a meaningful life now and into the future.
Jesus can make sense of your life in a way that nothing else or no one else can. He said 'I am the way the truth and the life'. Now that is big claim, but if there is a chance it could be real, isn't it worth checking out? Maybe he's not irrelevant or outdated. Maybe he's exactly what you need.

No Pressure - No Charge
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the meaning of life. It considers the amazingly relevant and practical answers Jesus has to life’s big questions.
It is not for religious people or designed to make people religious, but to give guests an opportunity to investigate, without pressure and at their own pace, what so many have found to be the best news they ever heard - the basis of personal victory in life and hope for the future.
Many in these times are facing insecurities, concerns and trials that are very significant. Alpha will introduce guests to God who is so very compassionate and able to help - and how it is that we can know and relate to him.
At Alpha people with differing views are totally welcomed, respected, and in fact encouraged to openly and honestly share them. We are enriched by other’s understandings - all being on a journey, where it is rare to have an opportunity to engage in conversations about life’s big questions.
Each week (for 10 weeks), Alpha starts with a meal and relaxed conversations - always a great time to get to know new friends.
Following the meal, is a short talk on DVD exploring another of life’s big questions.
In small groups, guests can ask any question and discuss opinions and thoughts freely with others
Alpha began in 1977 in Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB), an Anglican Church in London. and spread In the 1990’s through the UK and then internationally.
Globally, over 27 million people have experienced Alpha and been engaged in conversations about Life, Faith and God.
