If you are new to faith, exploring faith or have questions, we have a great way for you to learn and ask. Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting.

This 11-week course is designed to investigate the various claims of Christianity and answer those daunting questions about God and the world today.

Enjoy learning in a fun and friendly online atmosphere whether on-site or online where no question about life and God is seen as too simple or too hostile… questions like – Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?

This course is ideal for those who have not yet made up their mind about their faith, new believers, and anyone who wants to learn!

Fall 2020 Courses

Alpha explores the basics of the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question and is designed to create conversation. There is no pressure, no follow-up, and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
I am interested in attending Alpha On-Site

COMMON QUESTIONS

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is designed for people who don’t normally go to church. People from a whole range of ages and backgrounds, all with different viewpoints, are attracted by the opportunity to explore their questions.

Can I try it without doing the whole course?

Absolutely. We aim to create a welcoming environment with absolutely no pressure. So, if after visiting you don’t feel the course is for you, no worries.

Does the course explore other Religions?

Not really. The course content is designed to help you explore your questions in the context of the Christian faith.

How much will it cost me?

There is a $5 cash charge per session for our Restaurant Alpha courses, payable at the beginning of the session to help defray the cost.

There is no charge for Alpha courses occurring at Beulah’s Campuses, although donations are welcome and appreciated. If you require childcare for kids ages 0-7, fees apply.

What can I expect?

Each session begins with a meal or some light refreshments and a chance to get to know others in the small group. We then listen to a short talk and take some time to discuss what we’ve heard together. Everyone is welcome to share their thoughts and questions and learn from one another’s perspectives.

Can I volunteer?

Alpha needs Kitchen Help people with a heart for making Jesus famous. Contact us at alpha@beulah.ca if you’re interested.

I grew up in a Christian home and have attended church for as long as I can remember. So when my sister-in-law asked me about Alpha, I said of course I would go with her. I walked into that first session confident in my relationship with Jesus, ready to be a support to my sister-in-law, and not thinking that I would learn anything new that I hadn’t heard before. Well, God had a different plan. He opened my heart wide open and reignited my fire. I am now the person that wants EVERYONE… the seeker, the believer, young and old, comfortable and uncomfortable to attend Alpha. Believe me when I say, God can do something new inside what we think and have believed all our lives.
