Alpha is a 10-week experience that provides a space for honest conversation around life's biggest questions.
Talks are designated to engage people from all walks of life to explore issues of life and faith and unpack the basics of Christian belief, addressing questions like "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?", and "How does God guide us?"

Each session includes a meal, content, and conversation.

First up, there’s
Followed by


All sessions start with a delicious (and free!) meal, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.



The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. There are interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith. No pressure, no follow up, no charge. Usually around 30 minutes long, the talks 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. Debate and explore. Be honest, be friendly, listen well.





Just pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure, no follow-up and no charge.

St. Mary is offering an Alpha Adventure in the Fall 2024! Alpha starts with time to connect with people, relax, share a delicious meal and build friendships. During Alpha the group explores a series of questions, one each week, designed to spark discussion in an open, honest, friendly and welcoming environment. Looking to revive your journey of faith? RSVP as a guest and invite a friend to come with you.

If you're looking for a judgment-free space to ask hard questions and share your own opinion, there's a place for you. You do not need to have prior knowledge of any religion to attend, only a curious mind to learn more.

Join us for an awesome meal, an engaging talk and small group conversation.

Join us every week for a fun theme!

Do I have to talk and share my thoughts?

No. You may remain silent the entire time if you wish.

How long is an Alpha session?

Alpha Sessions last 2 hours. They go by quickly. We start on time and always end on time.


How much does Alpha cost?

There is no cost, Alpha is free!


I am coming and will not know anybody else. Is that normal?

Yes. Most people come to Alpha without knowing anybody else in the course. By the end of the course, most people become good friends. Alpha is a great way to meet new people.


Can I just “come and see” for the first week?

Yes. Just register to let us know you’re coming (so we have enough food prepared for you).


What if I go for a week or two and don’t want to continue?

If you don’t want to continue after a week or two, no worries. We will not call you or bother you if you don’t come back.


I have more questions. Who do I contact?
