WHO | WHAT | WHY | HOW
What is ALPHA? ALPHA is a practical introduction to the Christian faith that gives guests an opportunity to explore questions about God and the Christian faith. ALPHA is fun, relaxed, and totally non-pressured (that’s probably why over 25 million people around the world have already done it). Listen, learn, discuss, and discover. Ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is off limits.
How does it work? Each Alpha session begins with food, followed by a short talk looking at a different aspect of the Christian faith. After that, there is a time for discussion in a friendly small group. You can ask questions, or choose not to. Up to you. Who is ALPHA for? ALPHA is for everyone, especially:
- Those wanting to investigate Christianity
- Those who are new to the Christian faith
- Those wanting to grow in understanding and faith
What is the cost?
- There is a one-time cost of $10 to purchase the ALPHA manual. Everything including the dinner is free. Though we appreciate any donation to help offset food costs. Childcare is available upon request and approval.
Where will it be held?
- First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu (at the Koolau Golf Course): 45-550 Kionaole Road, Kaneohe, HI 96744.
