The Alpha experience seeks to introduce the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions. It is described by its creators as "an opportunity to explore the meaning of life" Alpha courses are being run in churches, homes, workplaces, prisons, universities and a wide variety of other locations.
The course began in Britain and is being run around the world by most Christian denominations.
Alpha is organised as a series of sessions over 10 weeks, including a day or weekend away.
Each session traditionally starts with a meal together, but due to the Covid-19 epidemic, we have been meeting on Zoom.
After a welcome time we follow a link to the video talk and then come back to the Zoom link for discussion in small groups. The talks aim to cover the basic beliefs of the Christian faith and allow lots of time for questions and discussion.
Here at All Saints Church Algarve, we plan to run three Alpha Courses a year. The next course will be in the Spring of 2021. To find out more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
