What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.

It is an opportunity to explore life, faith and God in a friendly, open and informal environment.

Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same-they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools, and homes. There's no pressure, no follow up, and no charge; it's just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life's big questions together.

Details below.

What happens at Alpha?

Alpha is open to everyone and you can expect the following:


Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.


The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”


Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.

When it's Happening
