Welcome to Alpha! You may be wondering though … what is Alpha??
Alpha is not bible study, worship or like anything else you may have heard of or experienced before.
Alpha is a shared experience of food and conversation.
We invite you to come along to try Alpha at least once, enjoy a great meal and see what it is all about.
Anyone is welcome to attend regardless of your faith, belief or lack thereof.
You are free to be open and honest about how you feel about life without judgement.
The course generally runs for 10 weeks, but you can just come once and see if it works for you.
Please email [email protected] , SMS 0401 966 243 or scan the QR code if you are interested in finding out more.
For Alpha Courses outside of our Parish please visit the Alpha website for more information.
