Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each session looks at a diﬀerent question, and is designed to create conversation. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
Each Alpha has:
FOOD: Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coﬀee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no diﬀerent at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.
TALK: The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”
DISCUSSION: Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.
"Alpha is where I was able to go with people from all walks of life and come together to discuss faith. We ate together, we talked together, and we learned from each other." - Martin, Alpha Guest
We're excited to partner with Connect Church in Bolton for this next session of Alpha and you're invited!
