Looking to do Alpha in Pimlico, Westminster, Central London?

The Alpha Course at St James the Less is a great opportunity for anyone to explore life’s big questions.  The new course begins on Tuesday 17th January

It starts at 19:00 with food, followed by a video and short talk about the Christian faith, and a relaxed time to share your thoughts in a small group setting. The evening ends at 21:00 and there’s no pressure and no charge.

The 8 session course takes place two or three times a year on Tuesday evenings in the St. James the Less Centre.

Anyone is welcome to come along and find out more.

“What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions – life and death and their meaning.”
– The Guardian

“What distinguishes Alpha from other initiatives is the easy-going, relaxed feel of the proceedings – that, and its astonishing success.”
– The Times
