AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ADULTS & YOUNG PEOPLE TO EXPLORE THE MEANING OF LIFE

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha Course includes meals and an amazing weekend retreat that comes halfway through the 12-week course. The course meets bi-weekly.

Alpha has become a worldwide phenomenon, now in 164 countries, where millions of people have come to explore the meaning of life. At each session, people enjoy great food, laughter, and learning in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life and God is seen as too simple or too hostile… questions like:  Is there a God?

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT ALPHA

"For as long as I can remember, through my childhood, teens, and adult years, I have asked questions. One question I constantly asked myself was, “Do I believe in God?” I had no answer and it bothered me... By the end of the third Alpha evening I had come to a few realizations that were truly stunning for me... I knew that Jesus died for me and that I could never ‘sit the fence’ again." – Jill

"I have learned more in the space of a few weeks than I ever had in years of attending church." – David

"Everything Alpha gave me was so positive; it gave me the beginnings of understanding what being a Christian means; it gave me warm friendship and a sense of belonging... it gave me patient and thoughtful answers to all my questions." – Sarah

"Alpha is wonderful—life changing! Alpha answered and clarified all the basics for me and put me on firm ground to travel forward on my journey with God." – Mary

"From the very first meeting we felt this is what had been missing from our lives. It felt like coming home." – Margaret and Keith
