Alpha Logo


Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

Everyone has questions about life, faith and what it might mean to know God. Alpha provides an opportunity to explore these questions with other people and discover what the Christian faith might have to offer you in response. Alpha is your opportunity to ask questions and share your point of view. Regardless of your current state of belief, everyone is welcome.

The Alpha logo brings to life Alpha's central statement: everyone carries a unique question. This is why the Alpha logo is a question mark with the word Alpha in the dot. This is also the reason for Why Alpha? Everyone has questions and Alpha provides the opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith. Alpha lets you ask questions and share points of view in an open, friendly environment.

What happens when you attend an ALPHA meeting?

Essentially, an ALPHA meeting involves three things: food, talk and discussion


Food

Most ALPHA sessions start with food, because sharing a meal is a great way to build community among those attending and a great way to get to know each other. Whether it's a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It's no different at Alpha.


Talk

Talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They 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?


Discussion

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: 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. It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
