What is this thing called Alpha all about? First of all, it is not a program. Second, it is not a high pressure sales pitch. It is a place where people can come together and explore questions. The questions are their questions, and maybe some of them are your questions. Alpha is a place where no questions of faith, questions about God, questions about life, questions like “why are we here? or “what is my purpose in life?” are “out of bounds” or can’t be talked about. Ascension will host Alpha classes again in 2021.
Alpha is for everyone: Seekers, questioners, someone with a particular religious background, or someone with no religious background; it is for those who want to grow in their faith but are not quite sure how or who to talk to; it is for people who were raised with in a faith – and are now asking why they believe what they believe (or were told they had to believe); it is for people looking to explore questions of faith. Everyone has a different history, and the talks and discussions at Alpha sessions honor and respect that history.
