Inside and outside of the Church


Alpha Logo at www.alpha.orgEveryone has questions...

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.



What is Alpha?


Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

St. Francis Parish is starting an Alpha program on May 29  Come and see what it is all about!  We will gather in Parish Hall at 6:30 for a great meal and conversation.  Can't make the first one?  No worries!  Feel free to come to the second one the following Wednesday.

Check out the Alpha web site at for videos and lots of content.

Please sign-up with our handy online sign-up form.
