Join us for Alpha: A Conversation about Faith

Have you found yourself asking “Is there more to life than this?” or “What is my purpose in life?”  or “Where is God in difficult times?” Have you been in a conversation with a friend who’s asking these questions?

At Woodside, our desire is that people would consider the meaning of life and have places where anyone can ask their questions about God and existence. Alpha offers the opportunity to explore the fundamental questions of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. It is an 11-week course where each get together includes a meal, video and small group discussion that introduces the basics of the Christian faith. It’s hosted at the church and is open to anyone. 

What is Alpha?

Alpha is an open and informal conversation about life, spirituality, and the person of Jesus without judgement or pressure.  Alpha allows you to listen to others and voice your own thoughts and questions as we explore faith together without the pressured atmosphere that usually comes with these conversations. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Everyone is welcome.

Who Is Alpha For?

Alpha is a safe place whether you already follow Jesus, or attend church regularly or occasionally, or you’ve never even walked in a church. Perhaps you used to attend church but don’t anymore.  Maybe you grew up in the church but have major questions.  Maybe you just started following Jesus, or you’re on the fence, or you don’t believe in God.  Perhaps you subscribe to a different religion.  For any and all of these, Alpha is a welcome space for you!

What are the details?

We have fall (beginning late September) and winter (beginning early January) sessions. There is no charge for attending the Alpha course.
