WHAT IS ALPHA?
Alpha is a safe space where you can openly chat about life’s big questions, at a table with people who have the same questions you do!
Imagine a free, fun, informal dinner party, where everyone can come to the table with questions about life, faith and meaning - that’s Alpha.
Alpha is run anywhere people gather, all across Australia and is a great way to connect with people in your community and know you're not alone with your questions. Over 750,000 have been to Alpha in Australia.
Topics like ‘What is the answer to loneliness?’ and ‘Is there more to life than this?’ are just some of the conversations we’ll have together. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
Everyone should have the chance to explore faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Whatever your faith background and wherever you are in life - there’s a seat at the table for you at Alpha.
