Alpha & Alpha Marriage Course

Try Alpha 

Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore spirituality from a Christian perspective.  Typically run over 11-weeks, each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is a safe place to ask questions, and everyone is welcome.

 

What to Expect at Alpha

Food
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.

Talk
The Alpha film series is designed to engage and inspire conversation on big issues around faith. Usually only 30-minutes, these videos unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? 

Discussion
This is probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on a topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously.) It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
