Alpha Course

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of dinner conversations that explore life, spirituality and faith in a fun, non-judgmental and open environment. It’s perfect for skeptics, the curious, anyone with major doubts or hurts or those who just want to talk about the real issues of life with new friends.  Alpha begins on Tuesday, January 17th at 6:30 for five consecutive weeks.


St. Philip's Sanctuary is transformed into a cozy bistro - set with tables and linens.* Chef Carl, formerly of the Hyeholde, leads the dinner team.


We share one of Chef Carl's awesome meals and watch a brief Alpha video designed to engage and inspire conversation.


After the video, there is an opportunity to share thoughts and ideas on the topic. And, it's okay just to listen.

* During Covid 19, social distancing and safety procedures will be followed.

Alpha Participants Tell Their Stories

First Time Alpha Attendee

First time St. Philip’s Alpha attendee, Dorothy, shares why she is so glad about taking the first step…”I had all sorts of questions that I was afraid to talk about…In our video discussion group I learned that my questions were just like questions everyone else had.”

Alpha Alumni

Dave and Carla, 15 years involved with St. Philip’s Alpha, give an overview of the Alpha session. The couple explains the idea that sitting around a dinner table is a unique no pressure way to share ideas. They further explain that the table discussions will likely help you come to a better understanding that you would have on your own.
