Alpha is a series of food-centered gatherings that allows people of all backgrounds and beliefs to explore the Christian faith in an honest, friendly and laid back environment. These spaces are designed to provide people with an opportunity to connect with one another, be curious, and share different perspectives.
WHO IS ALPHA FOR?
Alpha is for everyone, especially if you are:
Those wanting to investigate Christianity
Those who are atheist, agnostic, skeptical, or unsure
Those who are new to the Christian faith
Those who have given up on church
HOW IT WORKS
Each gathering starts with a time of eating and getting to know one another.
Each Alpha evening features a 25-minute film that is designed to inspire more questions than provide answers. These short films explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity in order to inspire conversation.
DISCUSS & SOCIALIZE
The best part of the night is conversation, where you will get to know the people around the dinner table, ask big questions, and share your thoughts and experiences of life and faith. Each group is led by a host who asks questions and leads conversation around the night's question.
You are free to share or ask whatever you'd like and as much or as little as you're comfortable with.
