ALPHA IS A SERIES OF INTERACTIVE SESSIONS WHICH EXPLORE QUESTIONS OF LIFE, FAITH AND MEANING.
It takes place over a series of Wednesday evenings, with the option of a Saturday away in the middle.
Each session starts with food, then there’s a short talk designed to spark conversation, followed by discussion in small groups. No question is out of bounds, and you can share as much or as little as you want to.
Alpha is fun, relaxed, and there’s no pressure. At any point, if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem. Alpha is completely free, though there’s an optional donation towards food.
OUR NEXT ALPHA BEGINS ON WEDNESDAY 3RD OCTOBER, 7:00-9:00PM.
