Alpha Series
Explore Life's Big Questions

"No Pressure"

"No Follow-Up"

"No Charge"

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

How does it work?
Alpha is typically 8-12 sessions with a weekend or day away in the middle. Each session includes food, a short talk and discussion where you can share your thoughts and ask questions.

How much is it?

Attending Alpha is free! Food will also be provided. There is no charge to attend Alpha, though we will gladly accept donations.

What does an Alpha look like?

There isn't really an average Alpha.  It runs in churches, homes, bars, coffee shops, prisons and schools all around the world. No two Alphas look the same, but they have three key things in common: food, a talk, and open discussion.


Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.


The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”


The discussion allows people to share their thoughts and questions about the talks without being corrected or judged. Our training helps host and helpers facilitate this discussion time and keep it a positive and comfortable experience for guests.
