What is Alpha?

Alpha is an opportunity for anyone, anywhere, to freely explore their unique questions about life, faith and God. It is a series of interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Alpha is run all around the globe, in cafés, churches, schools, universities, homes, prisons – you name it.

The sessions usually have three key elements: 


Whether around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food is a great way to build community and it's a priority for every Alpha. 

The talks, delivered live or as a film, are designed to engage and inspire conversation, exploring the big issues around faith and unpacking the basics of Christianity. Watch a talk >
