We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore faith, ask questions, and share their point of view. You’re Invited!
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs online, in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: hospitality, a talk and good conversation.
At Christ Church, we usually host Alpha on Thursdays at 7.30pm in the church building. There’s 8 sessions and 1 Away Day (5hours) Why not try the first session and then go from there?
Each session is FREE and lasts for 1 hour 30 minutes and consists of three components:
Eat & Connect
When you arrive at the start of each session, you’ll connect with your small group over a meal and your host will give you a brief introduction about what the subject is for that session.
The group then watches a film together that is designed to encourage questions.
During the film there will be a chance for open discussion, where you can share your thoughts and feelings about what you’ve just watched.
Evening Alpha (7.30-9pm) – Dinner served at 7.30pm
Afternoon Alpha (1pm – 2.30pm) – Pastries and hot drinks from 1pm
- Jan 19th, 26th
- Feb 2nd, 9th, 23rd
- Mar 2nd, 9th, 16th
- Away day – Saturday 18th (TBC)
Towards the end of Alpha we have a longer session on a Saturday which we call the ‘Holy Spirit Day.’
