Alpha

Is There More to Life than This?

There are so many questions we ask ourselves on any given day. Some of them are “big questions.” Alpha is a safe place to explore some of these – a place to say what you think and hear what others think. Without judgment.

Come and See

You are invited to an Alpha “Come and See” Launch Party, September 15, at 6:00 pm, in Friendship Hall at St. Andrew’s. So, what do we talk about on Alpha? We meet weekly for a couple of months and explore the Christian faith in a low-key, friendly way. Questions like “Who is Jesus?” and “Why did He die?” Each evening starts with a social time, followed by a video talk. We then break into smaller groups for discussion and to hear what you think. You can say as much or as little as you like!

Not sure about it? You can preview Alpha by coming on the first session! No commitment required.

Whether you’ve taken Alpha before or not, you probably know someone you could bring along onto the course with you. Someone like you…with big questions.

ALPHA: EXPLORING FAITH

WHAT IS ALPHA?

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life, faith, and God in a friendly, open and informal environment. It is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, run over ten weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. The Alpha program is offered by organizations all over the world. Everyone is welcome!

ALPHA IS FOR ANYONE WHO’S CURIOUS

The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT ALPHA?

Food

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

Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally 25 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 such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?

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.

Sample Talk

Each Alpha class features a food, a talk, and discussion. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. See a sample of one of our talks below.

I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me
