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.
