Why am I here? What's my purpose? Where am I heading? Is there more to life than this?…

What is Alpha?

Alpha exists to explore these big questions and the Christian faith in a friendly, safe, and open environment. Alpha is a series of sessions; 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.

what to expect

Food: At the heart of every Alpha Course is the opportunity to make friends and meet interesting people, and we think the best place for that to happen is around good food. With that in mind, Alpha events involve eating together around a table with a small group of people.

Talk: Every week we listen to a short talk exploring the Christian faith, where we’ll address questions such as “Who is Jesus?” and “Why and how do I pray?” The talks are fun and engaging (think TED talks), and they create the framework for the discussion that follows. (Chinese and Spanish translations available)

Discussion: The most important part of any Alpha is the opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly, and open environment. No question or opinion is out of bounds and you’re free to discuss as much or as little as you’d like. We don’t assume any particular belief or background knowledge in Christianity.
