What is Alpha?
Alpha is a chance to ask the big questions of life and to explore what can offer meaning and hope.  Alpha is a program spread over 10 sessions that offers the basics of the Christian faith.  Each session is low key and focused around a meal and a main talk.  It's fun, relaxed and free - and you can ask any question (really - any question you want but were afraid to ask!).  That's why over 24 million people worldwide have already tried Alpha.

Contact Laurel Swencki or Terry Kirby in the parish office at 31-473-4800 if you have questions or would like more information.  If you are interested in attending future Alpha sessions, please sign up below.
