The Alpha Course at St. Peter Damian

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who's curious, with a focus on people who don't attend church or have big questions about life and faith. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. No question is out of bounds, and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

Maybe your faith is solid, but you have a friend, family member, neighbor, or co-worker who has questions. Why not share Alpha with them?

How does it work?

Connect. Alpha gives you the opportunity to engage in conversation, fun, and friendship in groups where you'll have the chance to meet new people and build friendships in a safe space.

Talk. The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and how can I have faith?

Discuss. 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 sessions will take place Wednesdays at 6:30 pm and will run from February 23 through May 11. *Note the group will not meet on Wednesday, March 2 & Wednesday, April 13.

The last day to register is Tuesday, March 8th. Registration will be closed after this date and no new participants will be accepted into the series.
