Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that Good Samaritan offers as both an outreach and a practical introduction to the Christian faith. It’s a place where you have an opportunity to explore the meaning of life and the teachings of Jesus in a relaxed, friendly setting. No question about life or God is seen as too simple or too hostile. Everyone is welcome. There is no charge to attend Alpha.
