Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. No pressure. No follow up. No charge. Alpha runs in churches, bars, coffee shops, and homes all over the world. Typically Alpha has eleven sessions and includes food, a short talk, and time at the end where you can share your thoughts.
Alpha by The Connection takes place in a community center. The opportunity is available to anyone looking for an open discussion about the big questions in life.
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. Sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.
Talk The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. Lasting around thirty minutes, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can I 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 (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
