What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of fun evenings with a dinner, film screening and group conversation – it's an opportunity to explore the big questions of life, spirituality, and faith in a laid back and non-judgmental environment. Alpha is about the things we all question: What's the meaning and purpose of life? Why do bad things happen to good people? What's next for me?
It’s for those who are spiritually seeking, want to explore or are rethinking their faith. If you are curious, skeptical, or just have honest questions, bring them to Alpha and explore them with new friends!
Connecting with others is what we were made for. All nights start with food and time to connect and build friendships, and create space for meaningful conversations.
Alpha’s videos explore the big questions we all ask, and guests from any background can unpack the basics of faith. Bring your questions, doubts or hesitations – you’ll find you’re not alone.
Those who attend Alpha share that their small group discussions are hands-down the best part of the experience. No questions are off limits and there’s nothing you can’t say (really).
Time & Dates
Alpha Launch Night
Launch Night is the opening night of Alpha, but it’s also designed to be a one-off evening for those who are not sure if they want to do Alpha! It’s a great night of free beer and wine, taco dinner, a short film, and great conversation with new friends.
Come check it out! Alpha is commitment-free but runs for 9 weeks, beginning on the Launch Night.
Alpha is absolutely free, but we love to know if you're coming so we can plan for food and organize awesome discussion groups. We'll be launching the next Austin Alpha in March 2024.
Sign up today, and we'll keep you in the loop! We look forward to welcoming you on Alpha launch night :)
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone who has questions and wants to have a genuine conversation about the deeper issues of life, meaning and purpose. No matter your background, history, or beliefs. You are welcome.
What happens at Alpha?
Each Alpha night offers a dinner and time of connection to build relationships, then a film exploring faith, and lastly a space for conversation about the content of the film. In that discussion, you can share what you think—as much or as little as you want—and nothing is off limits.
When & where is Alpha?
Alpha begins March 2024 in downtown Austin. Free taco dinner :) We'll announce launch date soon.
How much does it cost?
Alpha is free!
How long does Alpha last?
Alpha is a series of sessions. You are welcome to try it one week to see if it’s a fit for you. There’s no pressure to return, and no one will email or call you if you choose not to come again :)
"Alpha is a way to explore what we hunger after – meaning and intimacy and relationship... in a very non-pressed, non-judgemental environment."
