Alpha at All Saints’
Alpha at All Saints
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally, they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Alpha at All Saints’ starts with coffee and desert because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually, around thirty minutes long and delivered over eleven weeks. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? How can we have faith? Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share doubts, thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
