ALPHA @ ST. MARY'S

Searching for Hope? 

Our next Alpha will be announced in the Spring, 2021!

If you are "new" to Christianity, or are a seasoned Christian wanting to brush up on the basics, we suggest Alpha as a great way to get connected and grow!

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome.

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner. Alpha is enjoyed as much by those who have never set foot in a church, as it is by the regular churchgoer. No matter your background, whether investigating Christianity for the first time or revisiting your faith, you are certain to benefit from Alpha!

Alpha will begin on September 16, 2020 at 6:30 pm. This Alpha will be held online via ZOOM.

Each Alpha begins with a short talk followed by discussion. Probably the most important part of any Alpha: 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.
There is no pressure and no charge.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A TYPICAL ALPHA

Alpha runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes —you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation. 

FIRST UP - THERE’S FOOD WHEN HELD IN PERSON

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, 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 thirty minutes long, they may be given as a live talk or played as a video. 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: 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.
