Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explores the big questions of life, faith and meaning. The course is hosted at our church in a friendly and open environment. It provides an opportunity to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and deepen your understanding of God.
How does it work?
Each Alpha evening begins with sharing a meal. It’s a chance for people to get to know one another over dinner. Then an excellent video is presented on a particular topic followed by small group discussions where participants have the opportunity to discuss the video and ask questions. The course runs for 6 weeks. The evening starts at 7pm and usually concludes around 8.30pm.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone, whether you have no knowledge about Christianity, come from a different faith, or if you’ve been a Christian for a long time. Each perspective enriches the conversation and provides a deeper perspective as to who Jesus is and what he means for humanity today.
