What is ALPHA?
Alpha is a worldwide phenomenon. It’s found in over 160 countries. It’s run in tens of thousands of churches of all denominations. More than 27 million people have taken this opportunity to explore the meaning of life. Perhaps it's your turn to do the same through ALPHA at Second Place.
Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. Second Place offers ALPHA in the spring and fall. ALPHA meets once per week for 10 to12 weeks, and includes an amazing one-day or weekend getaway. Each session, you'll enjoy great food, laughter and learning in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is seen as too simple or too hostile. Questions like...Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?
Who is ALPHA for?
Alpha is for anyone… anyone who thinks there may be more to life than meets the eye.
People attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes life. Others come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during the Alpha course.
Many guests have never been to church. Others may have attended church occasionally but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. Everyone is welcome.
What happens at ALPHA?
Each gathering begins with a meal or refreshments - a chance to get to know others. Then there is a short talk which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion in small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion and ask questions. People usually stay in the same small groups for the duration of the course so they can get to know each other, continue discussions and deepen friendships. The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.
