Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.

Typically, Alpha involves a meal, a talk and discussion.

We begin with Afternoon Tea at 6.00 pm followed by thought provoking talks, addressing key issues of life from a Christian perspective and include multi-media presentation  (PowerPoint, DVD, film clips). After the talk, we discuss the topic of the evening, ask questions, share our thoughts and learn from each other. We aim to finish at 8.00 pm.

Alpha starts on Sunday 30 September at Emmanuel Church, Laindon Road, Billericay. CM12 9LD.

We find that Sunday seems to work for many people as it enables you to spend the day with your family rather than having  to rush in from work during the week and rush out again!

We’d love to have you with us, even if only for the introductory session: ‘Is There More To Life Than This?  

If you are interested in attending or simply want to know more, please contact  or leave a message with the Church Office on 01277 632120 so we have some idea of how many people to cater for.
