Got questions
about life?
Try Alpha

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions
that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

What is Alpha?

Alpha at St. Ignatius
is not so much a course,
but an experience!

Coming together once a week over a three month period,  people from every walk of life explore the big questions in a friendly, open and non-judgmental environment.

Alpha typically takes place in our Lounge in the church basement.  Plenty of care goes into creating a comfortable and welcoming space, open to all.

But no matter where Alpha takes place, the format is the same.  We begin by sharing a meal. After eating together, we listen to a talk and then gather in small groups for discussion.   There is also a weekend “offsite” retreat midway through the experience.

Alpha is a regular occurrence here at St. Ignatius. Alpha is an experience we hope that everyone can share in as we build community and open our doors to our neighbours. 

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone and anyone.

The beauty of Alpha is that there are no questions that are too hostile, too silly or too simple. Alpha has no prerequisites whatsoever. We come together with one another as we are, free to be ourselves.
