EVERYONE HAS QUESTIONS
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith. To ask questions, and share their point of view in an open, friendly environment.
EXPLORE LIFE, FAITH & MEANING
What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith, in a friendly, open and informal environment. Alpha is not so much a course, but an EXPERIENCE! Gathering once a week over a twelve week period, each Alpha experience brings together people from every walk of life. The format of Alpha is always the same. We begin each Alpha gathering by sharing a meal, then we watch a video, have a break for coffee and finally a small group discussion. Over 29 million people across the globe have done Alpha.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone and anyone. The symbol for Alpha is the Question Mark? The beauty of Alpha is that there are no questions that are taboo, too silly or too simple. You ‘can ask that!’ You don’t have to be or have done anything to come to Alpha. Just ‘Come and See’. So if you are new to the area, new to Australia, new to the parish, just come. We come together with one another as we are, free to be ourselves.
