Alpha for NextGen:College Age Begins Mondays, January 21

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a chance to explore and question the meaning of life, and to learn more about what this whole Christianity thing means. During an 8-10 week series, each talk will look at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe in lots of different settings, with three things in common: food, a talk, and good conversation.


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. We start with food because it's a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.


The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?


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

Alpha is for everyone!

Maybe you've never read the Bible and you don't even know of questions to ask. Or maybe you've been attending church for years, and you're ready to experience God in a new and deeper way. Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you won't walk away disappointed from our time together. In a fun, relaxed setting, you’ll have a chance to connect with others who are also exploring faith and God. So, bring your questions, and we’ll dig in together.
