I wonder what the Alphas intend to do inside St Albans church. This is what they did to a Grade 1 listed church in Reading:
'The church's interior was reordered and modernised. The Victorian pews were replaced with movable seating to allow greater flexibility in the building's use, such as the large dinners which launch the church's Alpha Courses. The pulpit was moved to the rear of the nave. A baptistery was also installed, so that new believers may be welcomed into the church family through adult baptism.'

Most newly acquired Alpha churches are 'reordered' in this way at considerable expense, generally removing pews and choir stalls to make their interiors more 'flexible' and to increase their income from other users. I doubt if we'll recognise the place when it's finished!
