Basic Alpha is a ten-week opportunity to explore the validity and relevance of the Christian faith for our lives today. It is a practical introduction to the basics of Christianity with loads of opportunity for debate and discussion. The style of Alpha is informal, friendly and non-pressured.
Alpha is enjoyed and appreciated as much by those who have never set foot in a church as it is by those who once attended and by the regular churchgoer. No matter what their background, whether investigating Christianity for the first time or revisiting their faith, participants get a lot out of an Alpha Course.
Each week the sessions start with a gathering to get to know each other and to enjoy a home cooked meal. The meal is followed by a video presentation covering topics such as "Who is Jesus?", "Why Did Jesus Die?", "How Can I be Sure of My Faith?", and "Does God Still Heal Today?". The topic is followed by dessert. After dessert we gather into small groups to interact, discuss the video presentation and other issues. Toward the end of the 10 week program a day or weekend retreat focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit.
