Alpha

Everyone has questions

Next ALPHA begins Wednesday October 3 at 6 PM.

Registration


What I love about Alpha is that it's not really a formula, it’s just community, around a table, with the gospel of Jesus and an openness to the Holy Spirit.

What Is Alpha?

Having conversation about life, faith, and Jesus is hard. Alpha is about creating a welcoming, friendly place where people can come and ask questions to explore the Christian faith.

People Talking

What does it look like?

Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same–they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

Food

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.

Talk

The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?" and "How does God guide us?"

Discussion

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.

Alpha is where I was able to go with people from all walks of life and come together to discuss faith. We ate together, we talked together, and we learned from each other.
