What does a typical Alpha look like?
Alpha runs in cafes, churches, universities, homes - you name it. If it is a place that people can gather, you can run an Alpha group! No two Alpha groups look the same, however they generally have three key ingredients in common: food, a video, and good conversation.
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 is a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
The videos/talks are created to engage and inspire conversation. Typically thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or shown as a video. It is designed to 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?"
The most important component of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There is no obligation to say anything and there is no question or comment that is off limits. It is an opportunity to hear from others in all walks of life and to contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly, and open environment.
