What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life, faith, and God in a friendly, open and informal environment. It is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, run over nine weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. The Alpha program is offered by organizations all over the world. Everyone is welcome!
We start with the whole group with simple hellos, and to check in with each other from week to week. When we're in person, we start with a simple meal or snack to help us do this in a casual way. When we're online, we start with an icebreaker and let the conversation roll!
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and address 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 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.
