Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. It is perfect for those who have questions, are new to the faith or for those who want to find a good foundation for what they believe.
Each talk looks at a different conversation around faith and is designed to create conversation. When we gather at the Summit church campus, we always begin with a free meal together. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.
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. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Around thirty minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?
This is 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. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
