Alpha

Alpha will start again after Easter 2021.
We are looking forward so much to seeing you and to sharing the Alpha journey with you.
We will be announcing more details early in 2021 so please do come back and watch this space’

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. 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. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

During the lockdown we ran two series of Alpha Online, and it has been such a success we will be running it again after Easter. If we are allowed to, we will also be meeting for Alpha in person, but we need to wait and see what we can do.

Please do come and join us. The next Alpha at St Elizabeth’s starts after Easter (date to be confirmed) but you can register now. You will be most welcome.

Alpha Testimonies

Food

Each session starts with food because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Film

The short films are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, 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.

Who is it for?

Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. There’s no charge and no follow up. Just come along and bring a friend.
