Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that create a safe and honest space, online or in person, for anyone who wants to explore life and the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Alpha is free and everyone is welcome.
Connection – Whether in person over a meal or virtually with a cup of tea, all sessions start with a time to connect, relax and build friendships.
Content – The Alpha talks are designed to inspire conversation. They explore the big issues of life and faith, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?
Conversation – One of the most important parts of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Alpha is for everyone who is willing to have an honest conversation. No matter your background, history, or beliefs, you are welcome.
Every Alpha session is unique but the core elements stay the same. There is time for connection with one another, be that a meal, snacks or cup of tea over Zoom. Then, we watch a video together, and afterwards we have a conversation about it.
In the conversation time, you share what you think. You can say as much or as little as you want, and nothing is off limits. Seriously.
Alpha is absolutely free.
Alpha is a series of sessions usually held weekly over 7 weeks. However, you are welcome to come along for one week and see if it’s a fit for you. No pressure. A typical Alpha session go for around 60-90 minutes.
