Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. Alpha can be a place to start or a place to start over again if you have had a bad experience with church or Christianity. Alpha is a series of gatherings that invite participants to come to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and discover what it means to be his disciple. Alpha is for regular churchgoers, for infrequent churchgoers, and for non-churchgoers. Alpha focuses on the fundamentsal of Christian faith in a welcoming non-judgmental way. To find out more, email
