Alpha

What is Alpha?

Are you looking to create a more outward looking church? Are you wondering how to create an environment where seekers feel welcome to ask their questions? Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly and honest environment. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.
 
Alpha runs in churches, homes, coffee shops and bars all around the globe. Typically it has ten sessions, which include food, a short talk and a time of small group discussion where you can share your thoughts. It covers topics such as, "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?", and "How can I resist evil?"
