What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.  No pressure.  No follow up.  No charge.  It runs in churches, bars, coffee shops and homes all around the globe.  Typically, Alpha includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where guests can share their thoughts.

It’s an OPPORTUNITY for anyone to EXPLORE life’s big spiritual questions.  These events are low-key, respectful, and open to everyone.

It’s fun, relaxed, and FREE, and you can ask anything you like.
