Alpha is a 9 week series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each night looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation in a judgment free environment.
No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a question, and good conversation.
We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
Then, a Question
The questions are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally we’ll spend thirty minutes here, given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as “Who is Jesus?” and “How can we have faith?”
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation for you to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
