Alpha Weekend Away!

The Alpha Weekend is a relaxed weekend by the sea at Bracklesham Bay, near Chichester. It offers a great opportunity to get to know your group better and to hear some more talks about the Christian faith. There are evening entertainments too that are surely not to be missed!

Who is the Alpha Weekend for?

Everyone on the current term of Alpha is welcome to come. Please feel free to bring your spouse and children. We offer fantastic childcare programme during all the main sessions.

When is it?

25th - 27th November

Arrive anytime from 6pm on the Friday. Coaches leave at 2pm on the Sunday.

Can't afford it?

We don't want anyone to miss out on the weekend away. If you feel like you can't afford the full cost of the weekend, you can make an application for a bursary with your booking.

Alternatively, if you'd like to help enable someone to come along to the Weekend Away, you can make a contribution to our bursary fund.
