Alpha

 

WHY ALPHA?

Everyone should have a chance to explore the Christian faith.

 

What is Alpha?

Many of the people who attend Kensington are people who are at the beginning of their spiritual journey. Maybe we’re asking questions like Who is God?, Who is Jesus?, What value does the Bible have in my life?, How do I pray? These are the big questions that are at the heart of what it means to have a relationship with God.

We have a program that is designed exactly for people like you – it’s called Alpha. It’s an ten-week introduction to the Christian faith over a great meal with friends, and happens at several of our campuses.

You don’t have to come for the whole series—just check it out for the first session and see what you think. No pressure.

YOU ARE INVITED TO ALPHA

Alpha is a space to explore life’s big questions, to say what you think and to hear other people’s points of view.

Good Food

At the heart of every Alpha Course is the opportunity to make some friends, and we think the best place for that to happen is around some great food. With that in mind, Alpha events involve eating together around a table of eight to 12 people.

Alpha talk

Every week we listen to a talk on a theme that is central to the Christian faith. These are presented on video or by one of our Kensington speakers. The talks are fun and engaging (think TED talks), and they create the framework for the discussion that follows.

Discussion

No question is out of bounds and you’re free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the conversation. We don’t assume any particular belief or background knowledge in Christianity.

Marriage Classes

What grows marriages? Focusing on the two of you and being in community!
The Marriage Course includes seven sessions, designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage. Some couples do the course to intentionally invest in their relationship, others are looking to address more specific challenges. Either way, the course offers essential tools and practical ideas to help you build a relationship that lasts a lifetime. The Marriage Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background.

Please email marriage@kensingtonchurch.org with any questions.

Financial Peace University (FPU)

Financial Peace University (FPU) is a catalyst to help people live in financial freedom and enable them to have a posture of openhandedness. We have witnessed numerous Kensington families experience life change as a result of applying Biblical truths to their personal finances. The real blessing is seeing people create lives of margin that allow them to hear and respond to the Lord’s calling on their lives.

Bible Basics

Whether you are brand new to the Bible or have been reading it for decades, Bible Basics is a course that will help you understand the overall flow of the Bible. Over the course of several weeks, learn how the Bible came from the original writers to the English versions we have today. We’ll look at the big-picture story of the Bible and how all the individual books add to the whole. We’ll even learn a little about the history of the Jewish nation. But most of all, we’ll grow in our awe of the amazing author of this amazing book!
