All of us explore. We ask questions, we seek answers. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore all the big questions of life with food, a talk and open discussion.

Explore life, faith, meaning and more, try Alpha.

Each session looks at a different question and is assigned to create a conversation. No two Alphas look the same – they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
