Three Churches / One Parish

Alpha Training

What is Alpha?  No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Food
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Talk
The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they are typically played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can I have faith?

Discussion
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

 Are you interested in helping with Alpha at Divine Mercy Parish?  Call the parish office at 419-399-2576 for more information or to register for the upcoming training on June 10.  There will also be a training offered in July (details to come).
