The first session of Alpha was held Sunday, January 13, 2019. Forty-four people plus the Alpha team participated in this new and exciting ministry.
What is Alpha? Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith that runs over 11 weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha sessions focus on three key areas:
Food: Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
Then a Talk: The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith?
Followed by Discussion: Probably the most important part of any Alpha is 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. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
This is the last weekend to register for this Alpha session. Another Alpha session will be scheduled later this year. Register online at the Ss. Peter & Paul website at http://saintspeter-paul.org/alpha.
