Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith

Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same–they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

What A Typical night of the Alpha Course looks like

Food

All sessions start with a delicious (and free!) meal, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.

Talk

The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. There are ten interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith. No pressure, no follow up, no charge. Usually around 30 minutes long, the talks explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”

Discussion

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective. Debate and explore. Be honest, be friendly, listen well.

ALPHA EXTENDED sessions

On May 4th and 5th, as optional sessions for the course, join us for Alpha Extended Sessions. This will be a Friday night session, followed by two morning sessions on Saturday. We hope to afford you more time to talk with those you meet at Alpha, and together we will take a deeper look into the topic of the Holy Spirit.

Important: Registration for Alpha Extended Sessions is for people that are already registered for and have attended the course above.
