Alpha with CCiL

Alpha with Chinese Church in London

❓Alpha is a series of sessions to explore life, faith & meaning, ask questions and share your point of view. Alpha is a place where you can be yourself, meet new friends over great conversations and challenge everything. Your point of view is as important as everyone’s!

It is typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around life and faith from a Christian perspective and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. Usually, Alpha includes (free!) food🍛 , a talk and good conversation. However, for Alpha online, we can’t offer food – but the talk and good conversation still work great over video call 💻! You don’t have to commit to the whole term – pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure, and no charge. No question is too complex or too simple, and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. Alpha is for everyone. 

Groups are available in English, Cantonese or Mandarin subject to sufficient participant interest. Choose from the slots that suit you. Date & details are in the link below. You & your friends are invited to Alpha!

We hope you will be inspired along the way to explore life, faith and meaning.
