What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith, in a friendly, open and informal environment.
Alpha is not so much a course, but an experience! Gathering once a week over a twelve week period, each Alpha brings together people from every walk of life.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone and anyone. The beauty of Alpha is that there are no questions that are too hostile, too silly, or too simple.
Alpha has no prerequisites whatsoever. We come together with one another as we are, free to be ourselves.
What to Expect?
Like most good things, Alpha involves food. Whether it's donuts and coffee or a full dinner, every Alpha starts with shared time together over food. It’s a great way to start building community and getting to know one another.
All the 30-minute Alpha films are designed to spark good conversation while exploring the big issues of faith and unpacking the fundamentals of Christianity. Every film addresses a particular question such as: Who is Jesus? And, how can we have faith?
For many people, this is the most valuable part of their Alpha experience: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the week's topic and discuss it as a small group. Nobody is forced to say anything and nothing is out of bounds. These discussion groups are a great opportunity to hear from others and share your own thoughts in a friendly and supportive environment.
