 What is Alpha?

  • Alpha provides a space to explore the Christian faith in a community setting.
  • The course is designed to be inclusive for anyone and everyone who is in the early stages of exploring faith and has a desire to learn about Jesus Christ. If you've known Jesus for a while and understand the basics, Foundations would be a great next step to consider.

What Can I Expect?

  • The Alpha course runs for 11 sessions, 1 Retreat Weekend and walks through 16 videos.
  • You can expect relevant topics, relatable hosts and a relaxed environment. 
  • Each evening begins at 6:30pm by sharing a complimentary meal together. Shortly after you'll watch a video and break into small groups where you have the opportunity to discuss the video in a casual setting.
  • Complimentary childcare provided.
