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
All sessions start with a delicious (and free!) meal, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.
The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. There are eight 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?”
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.
