What Is Alpha?

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and fun environment.
Attending Alpha is different: there is no pressure, follow up, or charge.


Alpha starts with a free meal. It’s a fantastic way to get to know new people and build relationships! Did we mention free food?!


Alpha is a series of 10 interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.


Alpha talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly and honest environment.

Alpha Weekend Retreat

February 15-17 at Stillwood Camp

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”.

whether you work, are in school, or somewhere in between… Alpha is for everyone.
