Sessions have concluded for the summer season. Please stay tuned for information on the next Alpha!
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. 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.
Alpha Online will be a little different from a regular Alpha as you join a group of 5-9 other people to have those discussions. This group will be a touch point for you process the questions that you have and keep the conversation going—if you choose to—throughout the week.
What Does A Typical night of Alpha ONLINE looks like?
Due to Covid-19
Due to COVID-19 we won't be having a meal together like you normally would at an in-person Alpha Course. We will be connecting online, so you will need to have access to a digital device and internet connection. We have purposely started the online sessions at 7:30pm so that you have time to eat before joining for the talk.
How will it work?
The talks (videos) are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. There are ten interactive sessions exploring different aspects of the Christian faith. 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 “Is there more to life than this?”
Each week you'll watch a video on your device, then have a discussion with your group online over Zoom. Watch the promo below for an idea of what the videos will be like.
Probably the most important part of any Alpha is 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. Though the discussion time may feel short, you can continue the discussion with your group throughout the week.
ALPHA ONLINE EXTENDED SESSIONS
The Alpha Online Extended Sessions will be on Friday evening, May 29th & Saturday, May 30th. As you reach the end of our 6 weeks together, you may feel different than when you started, and your discussion time with your group may be a little more open and transparent. The extended sessions are a wonderful opportunity to spend more time in the group setting, ask additional questions, reflect on what you have learned, and respond. Full details on the Extended Sessions will be given to you by your group leaders during the course.
