What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions run exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, you name it! No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Exploring faith and purpose of life

Where can Derby City Mission help me?

We support churches in Derbyshire running Alpha courses by offering a Holy Spirit day as we appreciate that not all churches are equipped with being able to provide this vital day.

Having a whole day to dwell on the Holy Spirit provides the best opportunity for you to fully experience His power and presence in a relaxed environment.  There is a lot to take in during the Alpha talks so this provides more time and space for you to meet God in your own personal way.  No-one has every been disappointed, God has made His presence known during our Holy Spirit Days!

Usually located in a one of our larger partner churches, we organise the logistics of the day, venue, catering, speakers and worship.

If you or your church is interested in joining a Holy Spirit Day, please contact [email protected]
