Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course usually meets once a week for about 10 weeks, including a one-day getaway.
Sessions begin with a talk which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion in small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their thoughts and ask questions. People usually stay in the same small groups for the duration of the course so they can get to know each other, continue discussions and deepen friendships. The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment. Typically each session will run 2 hours in length.
Who Is Alpha For?
Alpha is for anyone and people attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes life. Others come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during the Alpha course.
Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally or even regularly but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. Everyone is welcome!
Our next course is running in Tribeca on Wednesday nights from September 12th- November 14th. 7:30pm-9:30pm.
