What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and fun environment.
Attending Alpha is different: there is no pressure, follow up, or charge.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.
Alpha sessions start with food because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity.
You will have 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 (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
The Alpha sessions will include the following topics:
Life: Is There More to Life Than This?
Jesus: Who is Jesus?
Cross: Why Did Jesus Die?
Faith: How Can We have Faith?
Prayer: Why and How Do I Pray?
Word: Why and How Do I Read the Bible?
Follow: How Does God Guide Us?
Spirit: Who Is the Holy Spirit and What Does He Do?
Fill: How Can I Be Filled With the Holy Spirit?
Evil: How Can I Resist Evil?
Healing: Does God Heal Today?
Church: What About the Church and Telling Others?
