WHAT IS ALPHA?
Is There More to Life Than This?
Yes. No. Maybe. Probably? We all have questions that we want to be answered. Alpha is a series that seeks to answer the deepest questions core to our identity through meal-sharing, prepared talks and open conversation. It’s about discovering, discussing, and finding a place to belong and make friends. Everyone is welcome. No question is too simple, no answer prepared. You’re free to discuss as much [or little] as you wish.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.
A TYPICAL ALPHA IS...
Alpha runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes —you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk, and good conversation. We start with food because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other. The talks are in video form and are designed to engage and inspire conversation. 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.
