What is alpha?


Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, run over nine weeks.  Each week we gather together for dinner, a talk, and discussion. 

Each talk takes a look at questions of faith, but is centered around the story of Jesus and how being a part of that story can impact everyday, ordinary life.  Some of the topics we'll discuss at Alpha include Who is Jesus?How can I have faith?Why and how do I read the Bible?, and How does God guide us?  

After each talk, there is time dedicated to discussing the information presented.  No question is off limits and all views are welcome.

Alpha is for everyone, regardless of religious or spiritual background.  It is especially geared toward anyone who is curious about who this Jesus is and what it would mean to follow him.


Alpha at the Vineyard Church of Baton Rouge will run every Sunday evening for nine weeks from 4:30-6:30pm beginning June 3rd.

Dinner and Childcare are provided. 

Later in the summer, one of the sessions will be replaced with a weekend retreat.  This retreat is a great chance to get away for a few days and relax while hearing a few new talks and having more great discussion.  This retreat is optional, but we highly recommend it as it is always a great time and a great experience.

Alpha at the Vineyard is completely free. The only charge will be for those who choose to participate in the optional weekend retreat.  More information about location and pricing for the retreat will be coming soon.
