ALPHA

THE ALPHA EXPERIENCE

 
Everyone has questions. Questions about purpose, eternity and love.

 

Why not come and try Alpha?

 

Alpha engages and reaches people from all walks of life. It is for everyone, regardless of background or beliefs. Alpha is relaxed, interactive, non-judgemental and welcoming. It is designed to reach today’s generation and engage with them in a culturally relevant way. Alpha creates space for genuine exploration of life’s big questions, over good food and the opportunity to build meaningful friendships. Try Alpha. There’s no cost, no pressure, and no follow-up if you decide after the first session not to come back. Visit https://www.alphacanada.org/try/. To hear powerful testimonies, visit two Alpha Stories at https://www.alphacanada.org/2016/06/ and https://www.alphacanada.org/2017/02/.
