Alpha at OLMC

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions where guests are able to explore life, faith and meaning.

Alpha is held in the middle of the year. Attending Alpha you’ll have the chance to meet great people, experience warm hospitality, watch a film and discuss with others, questions of life and faith in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

If you would like to read some about some of the experiences of those who have attended Alpha previously, head to Alpha Stories.

What does an Alpha session look like?


At every Alpha session you will experience a warm welcome and be invited to share a simple meal or snack with others.


You will be able to watch a film that explore the big 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?”


The discussion time is an opportunity to respond to the film, hear from others, and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly, and open environment.
