+ What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life and some of life’s big questions, over ten sessions. Each session has three key ingredients: food, a talk and good conversation and each looks at a different question around faith and is designed to stimulate discussion. During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered too hostile or simple. Questions might include—Is there a God? Why am I here? Why is there so much suffering?
+ Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone. People attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions such as the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes their lives. Others come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during Alpha.
Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally and some have come all their life, but feel like they are missing something or have questions they want to explore. Everyone is welcome.
Millions of people around the world have taken Alpha in all kinds of churches and other places…maybe it’s your turn?
