Alpha

Is There More to Life Than This?

Yes. No. Maybe. Probably? Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explores life’s biggest questions. Each session includes a meal, a talk, and small group discussion, where no question is too simple and no answer pre-packaged. It’s about conversation, discussion, and finding a place to belong with friends, both new and old. Everyone is welcome and you’re free to discuss as much [or little] as you wish.

A typical Alpha session meets once a week for 10 weeks, sometimes right here at Christ the King, and other times off-campus in homes and venues in our local neighborhoods. All Alpha sessions are free of charge, and you’re welcome to check out the first week of a session, just to see.

Coming in May: Find out how to register for September Alpha sessions.

Our Catholic Context

Listen to Bishop Michael Byrnes explain the “Catholic voice” of Alpha.

In Detail: What is Alpha?

Alpha is:

  • A series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith
  • For Catholics, non-Catholics, non-Christians, anyone!
  • A tool that has been used in 169 countries (and counting!), communicated in over 112 languages, and experienced by over 25 million people around the world
  • A 10 week commitment, in which individuals meet once a week and includes a day-long retreat
  • A form of pre-evangelization and evangelization presented by ordinary Christians
  • Discussion involving the whole person—our intellect, our heart, our conscience, and our will
  • An opportunity to meet people where they’re at, to share authentic conversation among new friends
  • A journey of growing our faith and developing a closer, and deeper relationship with Jesus
