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.
No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common:

• Food: Most sessions start with food because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.

• A Talk: The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about eleven weeks, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore
the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

• Discussion: Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it 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.
