Do you have questions about the Christian Faith no one has ever really answered? Have you wondered whether Christianity is relevant to your life? Have you ever thought, ‘there must be more to life than this?”
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.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A typical Alpha
Alpha runs in cafes, churches, universities, homes —you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
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 a meal because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally thirty minutes long, they are played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?
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. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
