What is Alpha?
Alpha is a weekly course that explores faith and meaning.  It will help you to express your beliefs and to find answers to the questions that may have held you back in the past. 

What Happens at Each Class?
Each week, those attending gather for a meal together.  After the meal is over, you will hear a presentation that explores some of life’s big questions.  Then, you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts with those at your table and hear their opinions and points of view. 

Who Should Attend Alpha?
Alpha is for anyone who wants to explore how Christian teaching helps or hinders our everyday life.  If you enjoy sharing with people from all walks of life where there are no “wrong” points of view, Alpha may be for you!
