What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.
Life is full of questions we struggle to answer on our own. Is there more to life than this? Why am I here? Where am I heading? Who is God? What is faith? What is my purpose in life? There is rarely enough time to think these big questions through properly. We all have different perspectives on the meaning of life and faith. Alpha is a great place to talk about them openly and honestly.
In partnership with ALPHA Canada, we are pleased to host the Alpha class in Orillia. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Typically run over eleven weeks, each evening together includes food, a talk covering a different question around faith, and small group conversation. All sessions in this religious course in Orillia are totally free and everyone’s welcome.
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.
The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.
