Our next Alpha…
Our next Alpha starts on 16th October and runs until the 27th November. The night starts at 7 and it’s at the Belfrey Hall, on Stonegate, which you can find here. We will eat a full meal together, watch a video and then gather in tables to chat and discuss all about the video. The night will be finished no later than 9pm. We would love to meet you there and if you want to bring friends with you, please do, the more the merrier. It’s so easy to sign up, just fill in the form below and we’ll be in touch!
Everyone has questions
We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
First up there's 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. Most sessions start with food because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.
Then a Talk
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about seven weeks, 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 from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Then a Chat
After the talk we gather together in groups and chat about what we heard. This is your opportunity to ask any questions. There is no question too big or too small. The discussions are hosted by a team member but really it’s all about you, make sure no question is left un-asked!
