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!
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!
