What is Alpha?
Alpha is a relaxed and friendly series of group sessions exploring the Christian faith and is open to anyone from all ages. From those who might be at the beginning of their journey, those wanting to rediscover their faith or just those who are curious and want to understand more about christianity.
What Happens on an Alpha Course?
The sessions are typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.
The Alpha episodes are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They’re about thirty minutes long and explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus?, How can we have faith? and How does God guide us?
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.
