Online Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explores the big questions of life, faith and meaning. The course is presented online with Zoom in a friendly and open environment and provides an opportunity to explore the Christian faith, deepen your understanding of God and learn more about the Bible. The evening involves a video presentation and then small group discussions.
How does it work?
Each Alpha evening begins with an online video presentation and then small group discussions where participants have the opportunity to discuss the video in a friendly and open environment. The course runs for 10 weeks. The evening starts at 6.30pm and usually concludes around 8.30pm.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone. In the past we have enjoyed sharing with people who have little knowledge of Christianity, people who grew up as Christians and have lost touch, people who are new Christians and also people who have been Christians for a long time. Each perspective has enriched the conversation!
