What is Alpha?

The internationally renowned Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the big questions of life, faith, and meaning. The course is presented 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.

How does it work?

Each Alpha evening begins with supper, followed by a 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 7:00pm and usually concludes around 9:00pm.


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!

Why People Come to Alpha?

  • To deepen their understanding of God
  • To nurture their relationships in the church
  • To learn more about the Bible
