Alpha is for everyone. It’s for believers established in their faith and for people seeking answers to life’s big questions. It’s a place to question, an open dialog, and a tool to help us better understand how to be a follower of Christ in this cultural moment. So come…and bring a friend.


Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. 

Some of our recent Alpha participants reflected on their experiences:

Here's Colin's experience with Alpha:

WHAT HAPPENS at alpha?

A free meal. That's right, free. We'll even feed (and watch) your children, so feel free to bring them too! Bonding over a meal is a great way to create community, so we start with food and take time to get to know one another.

A talk. The talks are designed to create, engage and inspire conversation. Alpha follows a film series of different topics each week that tackle big questions about faith and Christianity like "Is there more to life than this?" and "Who is Jesus?" 

A discussion. 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. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
