Do you have questions about life? Are you up for an adventure?
Try Alpha Online.
We are running Alpha Online, from Thursday 21st January to Thursday 8th April 2021. (7:00-8:00pm).
Alpha Online is a free, easy-to-use tool to help engage people in our community with the gospel. It creates a space for people to connect with others online to watch a series of short films and explore the Christian faith together. Alpha Online is an opportunity to explore life’s big questions together in an open, informal environment. The films unpack the basics of the Christian faith, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus?, How can we have faith? and How does God guide us? Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to spark conversation which will be guided by hosts and helpers from our church.
Please share with your friends and family in conversation and via social media. If you can get someone to come along, register online with them here.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes – and now, even online! No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key 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 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. So get the kettle on, crack open the biscuits, and join us from the comfort of your own home.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty 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 from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
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.
And it is free. So check out the promotional film below, and if you would like to come, just click this tab to register.
