We are so glad you’re here! Alpha is a time to share a meal, watch a great video, and explore some of our biggest questions about life, faith, and God, in the context of a small group. Alpha is a safe and open environment, so no question is a wrong question. Please take a minute to watch the video below. We look forward to meeting you!
What is Alpha?
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith, in a friendly, open and non-judgmental environment.
Alpha at St. Ignatius is not so much a course, but an experience! Gathering once a week over an eleven week period, each Alpha experience brings together people from every walk of life. We begin each Alpha gathering by sharing a meal. We run Alpha out of our Lounge in the church basement. Plenty of time and care goes into creating a comfortable and welcoming space, open to all. Our aim is for Alpha to become a regular occurrence here at St. Ignatius. An experience that all can share in as we build community and open our doors to our neighbours.
No matter where Alpha takes place, the format is the same. We eat together, we listen to a talk and then we gather together in small groups for discussion. Over 29 million people across the globe have done Alpha.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone and anyone. The beauty of Alpha is that there are no questions that are too hostile, too silly or too simple. Alpha has no prerequisites whatsoever. We come together with one another as we are, free to be ourselves.

‘Pub’ Alpha vs. ‘Lounge’ Alpha
We are so excited to offer Alpha in a Pub setting (possibly restaurant, but come on, Pub Alpha sounds so cool!).
‘Pub’ Alpha will start the same week as ‘Lounge’ Alpha, but will take place Mondays at 6:30pm – 8:45pm. We are so happy to be able to host even more people through this wonderful experience – invite your friends! Both Alphas will present the exact same content, but ‘Pub’ Alpha will require a weekly charge of up to $20 a week per person.
