What is Alpha?

Alpha is a 10 week series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes – you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

First There's Food

The sessions will start with food, because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.

We will have pudding together with Tea and Coffee.

Then a Video

 These videos are around thirty minutes long. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Followed by a Discussion

This is a chance to share your 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 (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
