    Alpha 2017 course starts 2 October

    What is Alpha?

    Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a video and good conversation.

    First there's 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. At River of Life, most sessions start with a healthy dinner because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.

    Then there's a Video

    The videos are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Each video is around twenty five minutes long exploring the big issues relating the basics of Christianity whilst addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? or Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

    Followed by a 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 (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

    Alpha is designed for people who may have questions about life, wanting to know more about God or just wanting to find out for themselves what Jesus is all about. If this includes you and you would like to join us in a very comfortable environment without any pressure to talk or participate in any way then this course is definitely for you! Here at River of Life we provide a very friendly atmosphere, starting with a lovely dinner prepared by our wonderful catering team and followed afterwards by a 25 min video.
