CALLING ALL HIGH SCHOOL AGED YOUTH (entering 7th grade in Fall 2018 – 12TH GRADE)
TO COME TOGETHER FOR AN INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE
What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. Typically, Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.
Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. The talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment.
What to expect –
FOOD - 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.
TALK - The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally, thirty minutes long, they can 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?
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.
