What Is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.


Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same–they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.


Join us at Agincourt Baptist Church on Tuesday nights starting September 19, at 7pm! Each session will begin with a free meal together, please RSVP so we can plan accordingly.

Two sessions are available each night, one for adults, and one for middle school and high school students. Child care is available for children under 10, please let us know if you are bringing children when you RSVP.


Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships


The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”


Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.
