THE ALPHA COURSE

No Pressure. No Judgment. Real Conversations.

Alpha is a series of fun dinner and group conversation evenings centred around exploring the big questions of life, spirituality, and faith in a laid-back and non-judgmental environment.

It’s for those who want to explore or are rethinking their faith. If you are curious, skeptical, or just have honest questions, bring them to Alpha and explore them with new friends!

CONTENT (7:00pm-7:30pm)

CONVERSATION (7:30pm-8:15PM)

The best part of the night is group time, where you will get to know others, ask big questions, and share your thoughts and experiences of life and faith. There’s no obligation to say anything, and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously).

Even though we serve a meal at each Alpha, we don't charge. The reason is that we think it's so important to have a space to talk about the big things in life, that we don't want to hinder anyone from coming.
