What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over twelve 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.
Who's it for?
Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
How does it work?
Alpha is twelve sessions and a day or weekend away in the middle. Each session includes, food, a short talk or video and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. There's no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
