What happens at Alpha?
There is a series of talks, looking at such topics as:

- What evidence is there that Jesus rose from the dead?
- Why did Jesus die?
- Can I be sure that I am a Christian?
- Why and how do I read the Bible?
- How should we pray?
- How does God guide us?
- Is the Holy Spirit active today?
- How can I overcome evil?
- Why and how do I tell other people?
- Does God heal today?
- During the evening there is a time of teaching covering one of these topics. After that, we divide into smaller groups to discuss questions people have and to look at a passage in the Bible.
