Welcome to Alpha at First Pres!

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a space designed to explore faith, life, and meaning. It’s an opportunity to ask questions, share thoughts, explore answers, and make new friends. 

The Alpha Course started in London in the late 1970s and has since exploded all around the world. Over 24 million people have participated in an Alpha course! It is currently running in over 100 countries and in more than 100 languages. It comes with a video series that is engaging, entertaining, and thought-provoking (with recently updated versions for us to watch today).

For more information and videos on Alpha, you can visit www.alpha.org.

What can I expect at First Pres’ Alpha?

Alpha at FPC will take place on Thursday evenings starting March 3rd, both in-person and virtually through Zoom. This is a wonderful way to go deeper in your own faith, as well as a great introduction to what Christians believe for curious friends and neighbors. 

The format of an Alpha is simple and relaxed:

1. We gather together (with food!) to visit and get to know one another.

2. We watch a video talk where the hosts of Alpha help explore some of life’s most important questions…

Is there more to life than this…? Who is Jesus…? How does God guide us…? What about the church…?

3. We discuss together in small groups and share our thoughts, questions, and perspectives about the topic of the talk. No questions are out of bounds!

The course will run for 13 weeks (through May 26th, and skipping Maundy Thursday on April 14th) with a “retreat” day on Saturday, April 23rd. But don’t worry! You don’t have to commit to the whole thing outright. Just come and see if Alpha is right for you… and bring a friend! Alpha Guide books will be available to all participants. 

I’d like to join!
