Do you ever wonder, Who is Jesus, really? Maybe you feel like Jesus could have something to do with the meaning of your life. Or you consider yourself a Christian but you still feel like you could use a fresh take on the basics of Christianity.

The Alpha course is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening way over twelve, thought-provoking sessions. More than 2 million people worldwide have found it a worthwhile experience, completing the Alpha course in churches, homes, schools, universities and prisons. So join us on a journey of discovery. It could be life-changing!

What happens at Alpha?

Supper- Each night we start at 19:00 with a delicious meal which gives people a chance to get to know each other.

Talk- Then we listen to talks about topics covering the basics of the Christian faith, such as ‘who is Jesus?’, ‘why did He die?’, ‘what about the Bible?’, ‘why and how do I pray?’

Coffee & Small Groups- After each talk we divide into small groups to discuss the topic of the evening, to listen, learn and discover. You can ask any question you like. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile. We always finish the sessions before 22:00.


The next Alpha Course will start Autumn 2017 and will be held at the Ministry Center of Crossroads in Amstelveen. The course will run every Tuesday for 12 consecutive weeks. The course will also include one weekend away, the exact date will be communicated to participants.

We don’t charge any fees to participate in the Alpha course, but do ask a contribution towards the cost of the weekend away (around 90 EUR) and towards the food on the Tuesday evenings.

You can sign up by filling in a form later on. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to drop us an e-mail at and we will get back to you.

Interested in getting involved in making it all happen?  The Alpha Course cannot be held without the help of dedicated volunteers. If you feel that you would like to help, please contact us at We are always in need of people who can pitch in to host, to cook and to pray.

When: 12 Tuesdays, starting autumn 2017, including a weekend away, 19:00 - 22:00
