Part 1

Is There More To Life Than This?

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. It runs over eight weeks; each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Regardless of your experience with faith or background, everyone is welcome. 

Alpha is for anyone who's curious about faith or has major doubts and big questions. It's safe to ask any question and the evenings focus on listening, exoploring together and being real and authentic.

You can join us online for the first week and decide if Alpha is for you after that; there is no pressure to come back. 

How Does Alpha Online Work?

Alpha Online runs for eight weeks and you can join whenever you can. Together, we explore ideas relating to faith and spirituality by viewing a short film and then having discussion. 

We will send you a link where you can join Alpha Online from the comfort of your own home. All you need is an internet connection, a device (PC, iPad, phone) to join on, and most importantly a comfy chair!  

The real value of Alpha Online is in the discussion time where you can share your thoughts, and relationships are built over experiences and honest conversations. If nothing else, Alpha Online is a chance to be open about the big questions in life, and simply discuss your thoughts in a small group video chat online. 

There’s no obligation to say anything, and there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Watch

7:40-8:00 PM - Small Films With Big Ideas

Each Alpha evening features a 20-25 minute film. Designed to inspire more questions than provide answers, these short films explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? 

Discuss

8:00-8:30 PM - Discuss The Questions That Matter To You

The entire night builds towards this peak experience: after the film you will be put into a virtual breakout room and your hosts will lead conversations in small groups where you can share your thoughts about faith and life 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.
