Alpha is a series of 11 interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.
Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation. There is no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

01.

Join an Alpha Group

Joining Alpha has never been easier! You can get started by completing the Online Registration and preparing to join other guests in an online or in-person environment. New Alpha Groups are starting each month and our team can help get your connected!

Watch & Participate

The Alpha videos are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity. You’ll have a chance to watch with others in a live discussion during each video!

03.

Connect With Others

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk. Immediately following the video, we’ll break into smaller groups via video chat and continue the discussion online. Our Alpha Hosts will help assign guests into groups.

Alpha Weekend Retreat

Friday, June 3 - Sunday, June 5

Alpha Weekend is a time to relax, get to know each other, have fun, and learn more about the Holy Spirit without being rushed. It’s an opportunity to take all the theory and “head knowledge” and experience it on a “heart level”

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.
