Alpha gives guests a relaxed and low-key opportunity to explore the meaning of life. Each session includes a meal, a short DVD presentation and then time for discussion in a friendly small group.
Alpha offers something for everyone! It is intended for those wanting to grow in understanding and faith, for those who are new to the Christian faith, for those wanting to investigate the Christian faith, and for those who have given up on church.
Know someone who might benefit from Alpha?… invite them, and come with them!
