Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different
question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the
globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name
it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food,
a talk and good conversation.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes
long film-format presentation. Over eight weeks, we’ll explore the big issues around faith
and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can
we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Probably the most important part of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on
the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and
there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and
contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
