Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.
A chance to connect
Usually, Alpha starts with a meal together but during this time of social distancing we’ve needed to adapt. Each session still kicks off with a chance to meet new people and connect over video chat!
Watch an episode
The Alpha episodes are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They’re about thirty minutes long and explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus?, How can we have faith? and How does God guide us?
Space to share your thoughts
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 (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
How will this work with Alpha Online?
We will connect together using Zoom which will allow us to see each other and chat online. Zoom works on any device that has a video camera, microphone and speakers such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
When will the sessions be?
We are planning to hold our Alpha sessions on Tuesday evenings, starting 14th July, from 8pm-9pm. This gives people a chance to get home from work, or put the kids to bed! If you are interested in Alpha and Tuesdays evenings don’t work for you please get in touch as we would love to find an alternative time.
Is there a cost?
No. Alpha is completely free.
Will I have to pray or sing?
Nope. You won’t be asked to pray or sing. We want you to feel comfortable during our times together.
Who will be running Alpha?
Alpha is being run by Peter and Sue Atthill, along with other members from Aylsham Community Church.
