What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith, in a relaxed and informal environment. It’s designed for anyone with questions, whether from a faith background or not – everyone is welcome! Each session involves a film and a chance to chat through issues in a small group.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Alpha is for everyone; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
You don’t have to come for the whole term – just pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure, no follow up and no charge.
FIRST UP THERE'S FOOD...
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 and at Holy Sepulchre London we love food! Each week Alpha will kick off with a meal, and the bar will be open, it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.
THEN A TALK...
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they will be a mix of live talks 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?'.
FOLLOWED BY A 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.
