Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith, typically run over 12 weeks. Alpha is run in churches, cafes, colleges and homes all over the country and indeed around the world. There are three main ingredients:
Food. We always start with tea, coffee, sandwiches and cakes which give us an opportunity to relax and get to know one another.
Talk. This is in the form of a 30 minute video exploring some of the big issues around faith, such as Who is Jesus? Why did he die? How can we have faith? How can we overcome evil?
Discussion. In many ways, the most important part of the session, as it is a chance to share our thoughts and ask questions. There is no obligation to say anything, but if you do, there is no question or comment that is too simple or too controversial to be discussed at Alpha.
Each session lasts for about 90 minutes, and half way through the course, we spend half a day together, usually a Sunday afternoon, looking at how we can experience God’s presence in our lives today.
Our next course will be starting in September 2018
