Alpha Thousand Oaks
What is alpha?
Alpha is a fun dinner and group conversation series centered around exploring the big questions of life, spirituality, and faith from a Christian lens in a laid back and non-judgmental environment.
It’s for those who do not consider themselves Christians or for those who are rethinking their faith. If you are curious, skeptical, or just have questions, bring them to Alpha and explore them with new friends!
How it Works
Thursdays, 6:30-8:30PM | starting May 5th
Dinner and Drinks 6:30 - 7:00
Join us for dinner and drinks with new friends!
Welcome and Film 7:00- 7:30
Each evening includes a 25 minute film or live talk, designed to introduce topics and get the conversation started. These short films explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as, Does God speak to people? and, Who is Jesus?
Discuss 7:30 - 8:30
The best part of the night is group time, where you will get to know your small group, ask big questions, and share your thoughts and experiences of life and faith. Each group is lead through the evening by a host who asks questions and leads conversation around the night's question.
You are free to share or ask whatever you'd like and as much or as little as you're comfortable with.
Optional Socialize 8:30 - 9:30
If you have time you are invited to stay and hang out at the Alpha Pub after the discussion. Enjoy a drink, some music, and dessert!
