An Invitation to 'Come & See'

Have you heard about Alpha and wondered if it might be useful in your Parish?

Alpha is an easy-to-use tool for evangelisation which has been used by thousands of Catholic Parishes around the world.

Alpha presents the core of the Christian faith, the Kerygma, in a welcoming and friendly way which appeals to millennials, and seeks to address their questions and concerns.

You are invited to 'Come & See'

Attend an Alpha session with a free dinner and talk. This will help you understand what Alpha is and to evaluate it's possible effectiveness for your Parish. Sessions are available at various Parishes:

The Alpha Day/Weekend Away and Prayer Ministry

The Alpha Weekend/Day Away is a vital part of the Alpha faith formation process.  The aim is to create a “retreat” type experience, a time where a personal encounter with Jesus can occur.  In evaluations after Alpha many guests comment that it is the “best” part of Alpha. It is therefore important to run it well!

This training session will include:

  • Why the Alpha Weekend/Day Away?
  • How to run the Alpha Weekend/Day Away
  • How to do prayer ministry on Alpha

Further details, including the exact timing and content, to follow

Learn how to run Alpha in your Parish

The Training Workshop will look at where Alpha fits in the faith formation process in a Parish and how Alpha can become an integral part of a Parish pastoral plan to evangelise and grow missionary disciples. There will be information on forming a Parish team, running an Alpha evening, facilitating an Alpha small group and the Alpha 'Retreat Day Away'.
