Life Shared Small Groups Series

Three small group sessions to encourage and equip everyone in the church to share their faith.

Through Biblical teaching from leading Christian voices and real stories of invitation, each session explores what it means to live out God’s call to share our lives and our faith with friends, colleagues and neighbours.

 

It has been designed to spark conversation, prayer and action leading up to an Alpha launch or a moment of invitation in your church (e.g. Christmas/Easter services).

How to run the series

Through Biblical teaching from leading Christian voices and real stories of invitation, each session explores what it means to live out God’s call to share our lives and our faith with friends, colleagues and neighbours.

 

It has been designed to spark conversation, prayer and action leading up to an Alpha launch or a moment of invitation in your church (e.g. Christmas/Easter services).

01

Connection

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick online catch-up, times of connecting are important. It’s no different at Alpha.

 

Whether in person over a meal or virtually with a cup of tea, all sessions start with a time to connect, relax and build friendships.

02

Content

The Alpha talks are designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues of life and faith and unpack the basics of Christian belief, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”

Conversation

One of the most important parts of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and discuss 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.

1 Alpha, 3 Ways

01

In Person

In churches, cafes, prisons, schools, at home, anywhere people can gather, Alpha can run. 

You can enjoy meals together, watch the Alpha talks together, and sit around a  table, classroom, or lounge room to have a safe and honest conversation.

02

Online

Did you know that Alpha is just as effective online? We didn't. Until COVID-19, Alpha was all run in person. Now churches all across Australia are running Alpha online for people who are unable to meet in person due to a wide variety of reasons.

Hybrid

Alpha is adaptable. You can start Alpha in person with full confidence that should circumstances change, you will be able to move online with ease for you and your participants. Our team will support you every step of the way. 

The part we all play in God's work of evangelisation does not stop, no matter what. 

Where are you running Alpha?

The gospel is 100% free. Alpha is too.
