Is there more to life than this?

Do I have a purpose?

Why am I here?

Is there a God?

What am I doing here?

Why is there evil in the world?

Why do I exist?

Is there really a Heaven?

Is there a reason I’m going through this? 

What is ALPHA?

Got questions? Try Alpha.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They are generally thirty minutes long and played as a video, though sometimes it may include a live talk. Each session explores a big issue around faith and unpacks the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? 

What to expect 

No pressure. No follow up. No charge.

No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk, and good conversation. And did we mention? They are FREE!

First? Food, of course!

We provide the food and the session video, so all you have to do is show up! We start the evenings with homemade dinner because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other before diving into the learning session.

 Video or Live Lesson

After food we watch the alpha session video. The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They are generally thirty minutes long and can be given as a live talk or pre-recorded video. They explore big issues around faith and the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have hope while living in a broken world?

Let’s Talk About It!

Finally, we open up the conversation to give everyone an opportunity to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it further in a small group.

What’s great about this time is there’s no obligation to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say.

It’s just a way to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
