Welcome to Alpha: Explore Life, Faith, and Meaning

At Carey Church, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore life, faith, and meaning in a safe and welcoming environment. That’s why we’re excited to introduce you to Alpha – a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.

Alpha is more than just a course; it’s a journey where people from all walks of life can come together to ask questions, share their perspectives, and discover what it means to have a relationship with God. Whether you’re just beginning to explore Christianity, have questions about your faith, or simply want to connect with others in your community, Alpha is for you.

What to Expect

We will be exploring the Alpha material within our regular Sunday services during Term 2 (April 21 – June 23). Each Alpha session is designed to create a space where people can share their thoughts and explore the Christian faith in a relaxed and informal setting. Over a series of weeks, participants gather together to watch a short video exploring different aspects of the Christian faith, followed by small group discussions where everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts, ask questions, and express their opinions. We will still enjoy worship, prayer and other typical service inclusions, but we will also be serving breakfast from 9am with the service starting at 9:30am.

Who is Alpha For?

Alpha is for anyone – regardless of background, beliefs, or previous experience with Christianity. Whether you’re a skeptic, a seeker, or a committed Christian looking to deepen your faith, Alpha welcomes you with open arms. Our aim is to create a non-judgmental space where everyone feels valued, heard, and respected.

Get Involved

We invite you to join us for our Alpha services and embark on this journey of discovery together. Whether you’re attending for the first time or a regular at Carey Church, we guarantee you’ll find Alpha to be an enriching and fulfilling experience.
