Alpha is all about getting to know Jesus and having a deeper relationship with Him. It as a space for people at any stage of their faith journey with Christ, Christians and non-Christians.
Alpha is a place to ask the questions you might struggle with. At Alpha you are supported by a group of people who are all here for the same purpose. We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? or How does God guide us?
The most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic and to simply discuss it in a small group. There is no obligation to say anything and there is nothing you’re not allowed to say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
At GMC, two Alpha courses are every alternate year:
The seniors’ daytime Alpha early in the year, and the Alpha Course mid year.
