Alpha Course

Alpha Ireland website –

See below for some information on Alpha:

Alpha is a 10-week course that explores some of the basic truths of the Christian faith, including – “Who is Jesus?”, “Why Did Jesus Die?” and “Does God Still Heal Today?” It is Christ centred and scripturally based and has the backing of all the Christian denominations. The course is relaxing, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun. There are now over 100 Alpha courses running each year around Ireland.

Alpha focuses on one aspect of evangelisation i.e. initial or Kerygmatic evangelisation, which aims to bring people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as John Paul said in 1991 when Commissioning Families, in the Neo-Catechumenal Way: “New evangelisation demands that you present, with fresh enthusiasm and new methods the Christian faith. It is not a matterm of merely passing on a doctrine, but rather of a personal and profound meeting with the Saviour.”

Many Catholics today are finding this personal relationship with Jesus through the Alpha Course, Life in the Spirit Seminars or other evangelisation courses.
