Alpha is an opportunity to explore life, faith, and God in a friendly, open, and informal environment. It consists of a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith and is a great way to meet new people.

"Alpha is where I was able to go with people from all walks of life and come together to discuss faith. We ate together, we talked together, and we learned from each other." -Martin, Alpha Guest
