What does faith look like for you? Be part of the conversation at Alpha.
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the big questions in life through the basics of the Christian faith. The course runs over 11 weeks – everyone’s welcome and there’s no pressure or charge. Each session takes place at the same venue where you’ll meet other people with questions just like yours.
New to faith or simply curious about Christianity? Alpha is for you.
Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. There are three key aspects that make up an Alpha session:
Connecting with others is important. At Alpha, we start with a meal together to give people the opportunity to connect with people they might not come across in their day to day lives. This gives space for conversations to start with people that might have different perspectives and life experiences as you, making it a great time to listen and learn in friendship.
The Alpha talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Each one is around thirty minutes long and given by a speaker live or played as a video. They explore important 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?
One of the most important parts of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas in small groups. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t share (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Life is full of endless possibilities. Whether it’s learning a new skill, finding a new interest, or simply opening to a different perspective on life. Trying something new can be the start of something good.
Why not give Alpha a go this New Year? We would love to see you there!
