Life. Faith. Meaning.
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. 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, colleges, universities, businesses – and now from the comfort of your own home online! No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE
First, there's - FOOD
If we were able to meet in person we would enjoy some special home-made food and refreshments together … online – we still can!! We encourage everyone to have their favorite snack and coffee/hot chocolate on hand to enjoy during our time together. Maybe we can all share a recipe or two sometime!!
Next, there's a - TALK
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about twelve weeks. We’ll be watching the talks together online via zoom. They explore the big issues around life, faith and meaning. We 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?
Followed by a - 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.
