What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. It runs for eleven Sunday evenings, beginning on September 9 at 6:00PM, with a day together on Saturday, November 3.
Alpha is for anyone who is curious - there is no pressure, follow-up or charge. Each session includes the three staples of Alpha:
We start with food, 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 can be given as a live talk or 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.
You are invited to come to our Alpha preview party on September 9 at 6:00PM! The preview party will explain what Alpha is about, how it is done, and what you can expect. Food’s included, of course!
You can turn up on the night, but it will be great if you can let us know you are coming, it will help us to prepare enough food for everyone.
