Everyone has questions.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.
#TryAlpha with us!
We meet at 6:30pm on Wednesday evenings starting on September 6 at 56 Center Street in Bangor.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
First up 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. Alpha sessions start with eating a full meal together because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.
Then a talk
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long and delivered over about eleven weeks, they can are played as a video, from which we can explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Followed by 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.
Are you ready to join the adventure?
Join us for a night of great food, awesome desserts, a live Celtic folk band, and a chance to briefly explore the question: is there more to life than this? It's going to be a blast!
This party marks the beginning of Alpha - there are no obligations attached, but if you find you want to continue the conversation after the launch party, you'll have the opportunity to sign up for the full (and free) series of dinner conversations!
