What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith. Typically run over 8-12 weeks, it allows anyone to explore life, faith and God in a friendly, open and informal environment. In each session there’s food, a short talk, and discussion in small groups. Everything you need to run Alpha is available online and free to download.

Life is short. Make the most of it. Put God first. Love deeply. Forgive quickly. Laugh a lot. Find and live out your purpose.  -Nicky Gumbel (Alpha founder)

The training will be held on Thursday Feb 28th in the Mercy Room at the St. Patrick’s Community Centre, 42 Macandrew Road (next to St. Patrick’s Basilica).  It is an all day and evening workshop with two sessions.  The all-day session, 1:30pm-6:00pm, is to learn to run the alpha retreat day/weekend and the evening session (7:00pm-9:30pm) is to learn how to run the weekly small group sessions.  You may attend either just the evening session or both.  If you attend both, dinner will be provided at no cost to you.  Please see the poster below for a bit more information.
