What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions anyone can join to explore the basics of the Christian faith. Each session has time for connection, a talk, and space for a conversation about life, faith and God. It is designed for people without a church background or who wouldn’t call themselves a Christian but also an opportunity to invite your friends to hear the gospel and explore a relationship with Jesus. You can even attend with them! There’s no pressure and no charge; it’s just a place to be open, informal, and honest as we explore life’s big questions together.
What does a typical Alpha night look like?
You'll be warmly welcomed; it's fun to connect as a big group, break the ice and say hello to each other whilst enjoying some hot food each Thursday night! Enjoy an open, light-hearted atmosphere that we will all build together.
Next, we'll break into smaller groups of 6-10 people. These will be the people you'll watch the videos with, discuss with, and come to know well through the 9 weeks of the Alpha Course.
The videos are less than 30 minutes and each video introduces a big question that will frame the discussion to follow. For example, the first session “Is there more to life than this?” begins a discussion on expectations and what we are seeking in life. The videos are great quality—check out the trailer below for a sample.
People will be joining of all backgrounds, ethnicities, faiths and world views. Probably the most important part of any Alpha is preserving the freedom to share respectfully delivered thoughts and ideas without being "corrected" or "judged". Be free to debate and explore. Allow your thoughts to be questioned. Be honest, be friendly, listen well and respect others.
The discussion time may feel short once you get going, but you will have opportunities to continue the conversation through technology or one-on-one throughout the week. It's up to you on how much you want to lean in, no pressure.
