What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith over twelve 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.

What to Expect

A safe place to ask life’s big questions.

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. Alpha meets in-person on Mondays for 12 weeks.

No pressure. No charge. No follow up.

An Introduction to the Alpha Film Series

No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: a meal, a talk and good conversation.

A Meal

First up, there’s food. Each week we begin by sharing a meal together.

A Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation and are generally thirty minutes long. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing topics like:

  • Is there more to life than this?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why did Jesus die?
  • How can I have faith?
  • Why and how should I pray?
  • Why and how should I read the bible?
  • How does God guide us?
  • How can I resist evil?
  • Why and how should I tell others?
  • Does God heal today?
  • What about the church?

A Discussion

Probably the most important part: 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. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
