ALPHA @ SWITCH ESPRESSO BAR
"Explore life, faith and meaning"
Exploring is good. We’re built for it. For all our searching – it’s rare to find time to think, and talk, about the big questions of life; about faith and reason and God and meaning. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith in an open friendly environment. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.
First up there’s Food
We’ll start with a catch up over a drink and dessert, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha and it’s a great way to get to know each other.
Then a Talk
The video talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation and are usually around thirty minutes long. They 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.
