Alpha

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.  All around the globe people are joining the conversation.  Every week, we gather together to dine, enjoy a presentation surrounding a common question surrounding faith, and then share and discuss the presentation over dessert and coffee.

Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome.

No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

All are welcome!  It is for anyone interested in finding out more about the Christian faith.

Learning and Laughter.  Join others in a relaxed atmosphere.

Pantry Goodies – each session starts with a meal.

Helping one another.  The meal is followed by a video presentation and small-group discussion.

Ask anything.  Here’s your chance to ask your questions and express your opinions.

Come join one of our Alpha sessions. Bring a friend, sibling or parent too!
