Who is it for?

This course is open to everyone who would like to attend.  Although it is designed primarily for people who are not churchgoers, it has also attracted many people who wanted to understand the basics of the Christian faith.

Church of Singapore runs the course in English and Mandarin regularly.

How the course works?

The course is based around small groups, hosted by one or two leaders who facilitate and encourage discussion.
Each session begins with light refreshments.  This is a chance to get to know others in the small group.  Then there is a short talk, which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week.
This is followed by a time of discussion in the small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion, ask questions and discuss with the rest of the group.
The emphasis is on exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course.
