Who Is Alpha For?
Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The evenings are designed to encourage conversation and explore life, spirituality and the foundations 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.
How Does Alpha Work?
Alpha runs for eight weeks with the option for an overnight retreat. Each evening includes food, a short film, a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts, and drinks afterwards in our courtyard Alpha Pub. There's no pressure, no commitment and no charge.
What To Expect
Alpha sessions always start with dinner. It gives us a chance to get to know each other and build community.
Each Alpha session has a 25 minute video that explores the big questions of life and faith and unpacks the basics of Christianity.
Every Alpha evening gives you a chance to share your thoughts on the topic of the talk and hear from others in your group. You can feel free to say whatever you like or as little as you like, it's up to you.
After the discussion you have the option to join us in our Alpha Courtyard Pub.

There is free parking available at the church, but spaces are limited. On-street parking is not always easy so we have free Alpha parking at the underground lot at 801 Lincoln Blvd (5 minute walk to Alpha).
