Student Alpha

unnamedIn between your lectures, essays, exams, socialising etc… Do you ever find yourself wondering about the bigger questions in life – What am I going to do with my life? Why am I here? Is there really a God?

Alpha for Students offers an ideal opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner over 7 weekly sessions.

Thousands of students across the world have attended an Alpha course. Alpha is currently running in a number of Australian universities and in 39 countries across the world including:

What is it?

It’s relaxed and fun…Alpha logo

It starts with a light meal and is followed by a talk about the Christian faith – shown either on video or presented by a guest speaker or student.

After the talk, we break up into groups of about 10 to 12 guests to discuss that evening’s topic.

No one is made to feel they have to talk, but everyone is given the chance to express what they think and feel – whatever their beliefs.

Over the 7 weeks, students get to know each other and often end the course as good friends.
