Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of Christian faith. It’s an opportunity for anyone interested in Christianity (or new to it) to explore life, faith and meaning in a friendly, open and informal environment. Every session involves fun, friendship, learning together, and sharing with one another.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about eleven weeks, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Do you have someone in your life who could benefit from exploring Christianity? We encourage you to invite them to Alpha this fall. If you, yourself are beginning your faith journey, Alpha is also for you!
We host this course at different times throughout the year. Please stay tuned or ask when the next Alpha begins!
