The Alpha course has been one of Christianity’s biggest success stories. First started in the church of Holy Trinity Brompton in west London it is now practiced in 169 countries. It is a ten week course that explores basic truths of the Christian faith. The course asks questions such as “who is Jesus” and “why did he die?” While founded by Anglicans it is used by all Christian faiths. Rev Craig Cooney is the vicar at St. Catherine’s Church and he explained more and gave an answer to Stephen Fry’s famous response to God. Here he is talking to Miriam Gormally.
