What is Alpha Online?

Alpha Online is a series of group conversations that explore life, spirituality and faith through a Christian lens. We create a non-judgmental and open environment where it’s easy for anyone who is an atheist, skeptic or just curious about faith to explore questions of life with new friends.

If you want to know more we’d love to invite you to try Session 1 of Alpha Online. It will be a fun evening where you can find out if Alpha is for you. We’ll be running Alpha on different nights of the week, so fill in the form below and we’ll find the right group for you.

How it Works

7:30 – 7:40PM Introductions

Welcome and meet some new people


7:40 – 8:10PM Small films with big ideas

Each Alpha evening features a 25 minute film. Designed to inspire more questions than provide answers, these short films explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? Watch the film each week from the comfort of your home through the link we will send you. Easy!


8:10PM – 8:45PM Discuss the questions that matter to you

The entire night builds towards this peak experience: after the film you will be put into a virtual breakout room and your hosts will lead conversations in small groups where you can share your thoughts about faith and life and hear from others in your group. You can feel free to say whatever you like or as little as you like, it’s up to you.


8:45PM – 9:30PM Hang out in the digital bar

This is an optional hang out time, where you can relax, pour yourself a drink and spend some time getting to know the other guests in the Alpha digital bar. No tipping necessary…
