The Alpha Course

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.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone.  Whether you grew up a Christian or have never set foot in a church building, whether you are eighteen or eighty, whether you raise kids or raise cattle…Alpha is for everyone.

What happens at Alpha?

Alpha starts every week with a meal and relaxed conversation.  Next, a talk is given exploring various aspects of the Christian faith.  Finally, in table groups, guests can ask any question and discuss opinions freely with others.

When is Alpha?

At the Ridge we typically start Alpha every September and again in January or early February. Alpha Part 1 runs for five weeks, and Alpha Part 2 which is optional goes for another five weeks. At the end of Alpha Part 1 we do something called the Alpha Day Away where we focus on three teachings about the Holy Spirit. You’ll learn more about that once you come to the first Alpha class.
