WHAT IS ALPHA?
Alpha is a series of group conversations that explore life, spirituality, and faith from a Christian perspective. Alpha creates a welcoming and open environment where it’s easy for anyone – skeptics, those who’ve given up on church, or those just curious about faith – to explore questions of life and faith with new friends.
We invite you to our Alpha Launch Party on Tuesday, September 5th at 6:30pm.
HOW DOES ALPHA WORK?
6:30 to 7:00PM | MEAL AROUND THE TABLE
Each Alpha meeting begins with a meal together, where we enjoy good food and get to know one another better.
7:00 to 7:25PM | SHORT VIDEOS W/ BIG IDEAS
Each Alpha evening features a 25-minute video (see trailer above). Designed to inspire questions more than provide answers, these short videos explore the big issues around life and faith. Each video unpacks the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?
7:25 to 8:15PM | DISCUSS THE QUESTIONS THAT MATTER TO YOU
The entire night builds toward this time together, where you get to share your thoughts, critiques and questions. Your table host will lead conversations in small groups, where you can share freely about faith and life and hear from the others in your group. Say whatever you like or as little as you like; it’s up to you. This is an open discussion where you can be yourself.
WHEN DOES ALPHA HAPPEN?
STARTING TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH AT 6:30PM
Join us for our Alpha Launch Party on Tuesday, September 5th at 6:30pm, where our guests will get to know one another, share a meal together and watch a video considering the question Is there more to life than this? Over the next 10 weeks we’ll offer sessions each Tuesday evening covering different topics and ideas. Each session allows plenty of time for you to share your thoughts and ideas.
WHO’S HOSTING ALPHA?
TWO CHURCHES WORKING TOGETHER
For years now, Grace Mid City and Holy Cross Anglican Church have shared office and worship space, collaborating in a variety of projects. We’re thankful to continue that tradition as we host Alpha together.
