What is 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.


Alpha meets every Thursday evening from 6:30-8:30pm beginning September 19th through November 21st.

What to Expect

Food

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.

Film

The Alpha Film Series is designed to engage and inspire conversation (generally twenty tothirty minutes long).  Each film explores the big issues around faith and unpacks the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?

Discussion

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