What happens at Alpha?
First, there is food... Whether it’s full meal, appetizers or just desserts, food is a way connect and have fun together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
Then a talk... The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally thirty minutes long. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?
Followed by a discussion... Probably the best part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a group setting. 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.
