What is Alpha?

The Alpha Course is a FREE course, designed for those who want to explore the meaning of life in a safe & non judgmental environment. The course is very relaxed & great fun (that’s probably why over 24 million people around the world have already done it!) Why don’t you come along & try out the first evening just to see whether this could be for you?

Who is it for?

You don’t have to be a Christian to come on the Alpha course! In fact we run the Alpha course specifically for people who just want to find out more about Christianity, or have questions relating to the Christian faith. The course has also been helpful for a number of people who have recently become a Christian & want to learn more about how that decision will impact their life.

When/Where is it?

We tend to run  a few courses each year. Please see below for current courses running at The Forge:


ForgeEye Course – This course is running every Tuesday from 3rd April at 7:30pm. We’ll be meeting at 47 Ash Drive, Eye, Suffolk IP23 7DA. If you’d like to sign-up please email Jonny Abbott by clicking here

ForgeDebenham Course – Coming April 2018. More details to follow. Email Steve if you are interested.

ForgeThurston Course – Coming April 2018. More details to follow. Email Finn if you are interested.


The sessions tend to include a two course meal followed by DVD and discussion.

What can I expect?

Each session begins with a chance to eat together and catch up, we then watch a short DVD talk looking at different aspects of the Christian faith. There will then be time for discussion and questions.  There are 10 sessions in total.

What is so great about it?

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