The Alpha Weekend

Friday 10th - Sunday 12th November

The Alpha Weekend is held at Lox Lane Farm in Shaftesbury. For many, the Alpha Weekend is the highlight of Alpha and a key part of their experience. It's an opportunity to get away from Bournemouth and spend some time relaxing in the countryside, getting to know your group better. We'll cover 4 of the Alpha Series sessions over the weekend.

How much does it cost?

The cost is £90 per person, £45 for students. We don't want anyone to miss out on the weekend away so if you can't afford the full cost, you can make an application for a bursary by emailing:

What should I Bring?

We'll be in the countryside, so do bring some shoes for walking and clothes suitable for cold weather. Bedding and towels are provided on-site.

How do I get there?

BUS: For ultra-convienence, you can purchase a return-journey mini bus ticket to the Alpha Weekend for just £10. This saves you finding your own way there. The mini bus leaves from St Swithun's Church at 6pm on the Friday evening so make sure you arrive by 5.45pm to avoid missing the bus. Please add your bus ticket when making your weekend booking online. 

If you are attending the Legends concert on the Friday evening there is a second mini bus leaving at 9pm free of charge for Legends ticket holders. *please eat before you travel
