What is Alpha?

Alpha EveningAlpha provides an opportunity to explore the meaning and purpose of life. There’s no pressure to know the answers. It’s about coming together and being open to asking and discussing your big questions.

Welcome to the Alpha course. Bring your appetite and your questions. We’ve got some exploring to do. (From the Alpha Canada website – visit www.alphacanada.org to find out more.)

”What Alpha offers, and what is attracting thousands of people, is permission, rare in secular culture, to discuss the big questions – life and death and their meaning.”- The Guardian (ref: Alpha Canada website)

Burnaby Alliance Church started running the Alpha Course back in the Spring of 2006.  BAC runs the Alpha Course:
– in the Spring from April to June

We run a development series of topical studies to continually mature and grow before and after the Alpha Course:
– in the Fall from September to November.

Come join us to explore the meaning of life. Click here for more info on the Alpha Course at BAC.

See you at Alpha!
