WHAT IS ALPHA?
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 is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities and homes. 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
Food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We serve dinner and get aquainted over the meal.
Then a talk
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about eleven weeks. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like:
- Why Am I Here?
- Who is Jesus?
- How can we have faith?
- Why and how do I pray?
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 (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
WHO IS ALPHA FOR?
Everyone is welcome! People attend from many different viewpoints, backgrounds, and religions. Some come to investigate whether God exists and if there is any point to life; others are concerned about what happens after death. Still others may have attended church all their life, but feel they never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. No question is off limits and you are free to share as much or as little as you like.
