Is there more to life than this?

What’s Alpha?

Alpha is a series of video-led discussions that explore the Christian faith. The course takes place over a period of about 8 weeks. Each evening we explore different key questions around faith with explanatory videos and lots of open conversation. The Alpha program is offered by organizations all over the world. Everyone is welcome!

  • Connection

    A key part of Alpha is making connections. We start with simple hellos and continue to check in with each other from week to week. When we're in person, we share a simple meal or snack in a casual gathering. When we're online, we start with an icebreaker and let the conversation roll!

  • Video talks

    The Alpha videos are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and address questions such as who is Jesus and how can we have faith?

  • Discussion

    The most interesting part of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic in a small 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.

  • Holy Spirit retreat

    Every Alpha includes a concentrated set of sessions about the Holy Spirit...who He is, what He does, and how we can invite Him into our lives. We take the whole day on a Saturday for this in-depth exploration, enjoying a more relaxed setting, great food, and our usual Alpha friendships.
