Try Alpha Online

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.

Join Us Online

Joining Alpha has never been easier! You can get started by going to live.coastalchurch.org and watching with everyone in a simulated live environment. We’re streaming Alpha Online every Tuesday at 7:00 PM (PST).

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 type a nickname and join 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. You can sign-up for a group beforehand or let us know in the chat during one of the Alpha talks!
