Share life, meaning, and hope with your friends and family. Share Jesus with them. Alpha is a space to explore life's big questions, to say what you think, and to hear other people's points of view. It is a returning program that will help them find their answers.
What is Alpha?
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 is welcome.
No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk, and good conversation.
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally, thirty minutes long, they are given through speakers or played as a video. They 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?
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. 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.
Alpha returns to St. Michael this new year. We will be running an ALPHA on Sunday afternoons. The sessions will run begin at 01:30 pm on Sunday January 30, 2022 and run for 10 consecutive weeks thru April 3, 2022. On Sunday, January 23, 2022 we will host a COME AND SEE luncheon for those who may be interested in attending.
