Alpha

What is Alpha?

Alpha Online is a series of group conversations that explore life, spirituality, and faith through a Christian lens. We create a non-judgmental and open environment where it’s easy for anyone who is an atheist, skeptic, or just curious about faith to explore questions of life with new friends.

If you want to know more, we’d love to invite you to try Session 1 of Alpha Online. It will be a fun evening where you can find out if Alpha is for you. Session 1 will be Wednesday, January 20th. To sign-up for the course, or if you have any questions about Alpha please email Pastor Christy: christy@oakhillspres.org. We would love to see you there!

How it Works

WELCOME 7:00-7:10 p.m. Introduction

Be welcomed to Alpha and meet new people.

WATCH 7:10-7:40pm Small films with big ideas.

Each Alpha evening features a 25-minute film. Designed to inspire more questions than provide answers, these short films 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? Watch the film each week from the comfort of your home through the link we send you. Easy!

DISCUSS 7:40-8:15pm Discuss the questions that matter you.

The entire night builds toward this peak experience: after the film you will be put into a virtual breakout room and your hosts will lead conversations in small groups where you can share your thoughts about faith and life and hear from others in your group. You can feel free to say whatever you like or as little as you like, it’s up to you.
