Alpha

Alpha | Sunday evenings 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., September 8 - November 17

Join a conversation...

St. Paul’s is excited to announce the start of Alpha – an 11-week series on Sunday evenings beginning in September. These sessions feature a warm and hospitable time together where participants share a meal, listen to a talk addressing questions like “who is Jesus” and “how can I have faith?” and then discuss the questions in a facilitated table group.

Connection, Content, and Conversation; all sessions start with a time to connect and build friendships, followed by exploration of the big questions we all ask where guests from any background can unpack the basics of Christian faith. Alpha has touched the lives of some 30 million people around the world – and it will touch our lives, too.

Alpha is a great opportunity for St. Paul’s parishioners to grow in their faith journey, invite friends and family to a lively and fun program, or just volunteer to help with the program.
