What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, 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. There are three key things: food, a talk and good conversation.

First up there's Food... We start with a meal, because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Then a Talk... These are designed to engage and inspire conversation, delivered as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity

Followed by 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 (seriously). It's an opportunityto hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
