“Alpha was the best thing I ever did. It helped answer some huge questions and to find a simple empowering faith in my life.”
– Bear Grylls, TV Adventurer
|What is Alpha?
|The Alpha course is a ten week opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed environment with other individuals who are also exploring Christianity. Each week a different topic is presented in an informal and friendly atmosphere where you may ask questions or just sit and listen. Some topics include: “Who is Jesus?”, “Why Did Jesus Die?”, “How Can I be Sure of My Faith?”, and other questions.
|How It Works
Each week Alpha will look like this:
7:30-7.40PM WELCOME & INTRODUCTIONS
Click the Zoom link you have been sent and you’ll join a group of 8-12 people. Your group hosts will welcome you and you’ll have the chance to meet some new people.
7:40-8:00 PM FILMS THAT CREATE CONVERSATION
Each Alpha evening features a 25 minute film. Designed to inspire more questions than provide answers, these short films 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?
Watch the film each week from the comfort of your home through the link your group host will give you. It’s super easy and you don’t have to download anything in advance!
8:00PM-8:45PM DISCUSS THE QUESTIONS THAT MATTER TO YOU
The entire night builds towards this peak experience: after the film you will be put into a virtual breakout room and your hosts will lead conversations in small groups where you can share your thoughts about faith and life and hear from others in your group. You can feel free to say whatever you like or as little as you like, it’s up to you.
