Everyone has questions

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically runs 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's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but they have three key things in common: food, a video talk, and good conversation.

First up there's

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. All sessions will start with a meal because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Then a

Video Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, our talks will be given via a pre-recorded video. The talks will explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like Who is Jesus? How can we have faith? Why and how do I pray?  How does God guide us?

Followed by

Discussion

Probably the most important 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 (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Alpha is taking a break for the summer. Check back in August for our fall plans.
