This is an area to describe the details of the event. Or you could have any information in here really, it just doesn't matter all that much. But the real test of an area like this is how much text it can actually hold. I mean, surely there must be limits. Right? Well if there are we sould probably display a Link Style.

What is ALPHA? ALPHA is a series of sessions exploring the Christian Faith. We start with a delicious dinner, a DVD presentation by Nicky Gumbel, a priest of the Church or England, and end with a discussion in friendly small groups. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

What to Expect? Sessions begin at 6:00pm with a delicious meal prepared by people from one of St. David's many ministries, followed by time for prayer and music. Afterwards, there will be a video presentation by Nicky Gumbel designed to engaged and inspire conversation. Generally 30 minutes long, the video presentation will explore issues to be discussed in the remaining time at your table. Issues of faith and the essentials of Christianity will be the center of conversations.

Afterwards, one of the most important parts of ALPHA is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on Christian faith and to journey more deeply with fellow Christians. During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered too hostile or simple. 

Who is ALPHA for? ALPHA is for everyone - people attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus, and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes life. Others come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during the ALPHA course.

Many guests have never been to church, others may have attended church occasionally but  never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. Some are from St. David's, some from other churches, and many who have no church. Everyone is welcome

What are St. David's people

saying about ALPHA?

"Although a fairly dutiful church attendee for over 60 years, my interest in studying or even just listening to the Bible only really shifted into a higher gear because of the ALPHA program. Never before ALPHA had I thought so much about the ifs, whys, and wherefores of what it means to be a Christian." - Clint Brown

"I have enjoyed the program content, but I have especially enjoyed exchanging views with other participants who have contributed in a significant way to my spiritual growth."  - Dick Bauer

"Wherever one is in his/her religious faith, this program introduces and reaffirms the basic beliefs of the Christian Church. I highly recommend this program as a way to deepen one's beliefs along with other members of the St. David's family." -Lura Wampler

"The ALPHA program was my springboard to reconnecting to Christianity and developing a deeper relationships with God. ALPHA is thought provoking and helped me develop strong new relationships in our Christian community."  - Paula Murray

Impression of the ALPHA Series

 

 "I walked through the doors for week five of ALPHA, convinced my group would see all the dark, gross, nasty and horrible things I thought I was. But that's not how they treated me..

The people in my ALPHA group were real and open. They encouraged me when I was negative about myself. It was like they genuinely cared about me than what I believed.

I ran out of excuses of why I shouldn't go and found myself on the weekend away. I reached a point where I was like, "God...if you are real, let's do this."

And the Holy Spirit showed up.

I experienced the love of God in the most powerful way. I became convinced that I was truly loved by God and I was never and will never be alone.

When I got back, I found myself wanting to do really different things: I started to read the Bible on my own and I began praying all the time. I was overwhelmed by God everywhere I went.

When my family saw the change, it sent a shockwave through our lives. My youngest brother, who I'd neglected, decided to try ALPHA too. The change was so dramatic he said, "Whatever ALPHA is I want to do it, because whatever happened to you must be real!"

Not only did I get a second chance at being a big brother, but he experienced the same love from God that I had experienced.

I could just see Jesus in motion. It was like God was starting conversations with people everywhere I went.

But what happened next is what really blew my mind. I didn't have to go to people. God started bringing people to me."
