Exploring Christianity

Exploring Christianity

Are you facing uncertainty? Unsure where you’re headed? Lacking purpose and drive? Having questions about life and faith?

At OMC we offer lots of different opportunities to explore Christianity as a way of life.  Alpha courses, Christianity explored courses, and our newest discussion opportunity called ‘Something better’ plus lots of one off events.

Our aim is to simply show people who Jesus is and why that matters.

If you want to know more- please come along and find out.

What is Alpha?

A free series of sessions that explore life’s big questions

Alpha is for those who want to discuss the big questions of life and explore the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment.  The course runs over 11 weeks and each session starts with a meal together followed by a video then discussion in a small group. These sessions are very relaxed and enjoyable with no questions off limits.  please check out the videos below to hear people’s experiences of Alpha. 



  • WHAT IS ALPHA? Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith, in an open and relaxed environment.
  • WHO IS ALPHA FOR? Anyone, of any age or background, who is curious to ask their questions and find out more about faith should try Alpha. It’s designed for those who are exploring; it’s for the cynics, the sceptics, and the inquisitive.
  • HOW DOES IT WORK? Each Alpha session includes a short 25-minute video and then a discussion where you can share your thoughts and where no question is off-limits.  You will meet other people with questions just like yours. There are eleven weeks of Alpha, but please don’t worry if there are some you can’t make or if you can’t make the first one.
