Got Questions? Alpha is Here.

Monday Nights in North Raleigh

Starting at 5:30pm


Alpha Course

Do you want to grow closer to God?

Have you ever had questions about the Christian faith?

Do you want to get to know more people at Asbury?

Do you want to better understand your

purpose in life?

If you answer yes to any of those questions, ALPHA might be for you.  Alpha is a 10-week topical examination of the Christian faith. There are several great things about Alpha. We eat a hot meal together, watch a video teaching, and talk about our questions of life in small groups. The meal is provided by the church. This ministry is great for all ages and especially families with kids, as we will provide child care. 



Next Session begins September 11, 2023!


ALPHA will be held on Monday nights in the North Building Worship Center. Dinner will be served at 5:30pm. Come and experience what ALPHA is all about! Meet new friends and enjoy a catered dinner each week. We look forward to seeing you there.

Connect in Community

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.

Where does Alpha meet?

We will meet on campus at Asbury on Monday nights in the North Building Worship Center.  We'll have dinner together there as well as our large group talk.  Small groups will meet throughout campus.

What does an Alpha night look like?

Food – Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with dinner, because food is a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.

Talk – The teaching talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? 

Conversation – Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment

What about my kids?

We believe life is better connected so we provide childcare on site during Alpha, including everything from a nursery for our littlest to a homework room for students.  We view it as an investment in you and your family.

Alpha is all about the Questions

...and we search for answers together each week.

Is there more to life than this?
Who is Jesus?
Why did Jesus die?
How can I have faith?
Why and how do I pray?
Why and how do I pray?
Why and how should I read the Bible?
How does God guide us?
Who is the Holy Spirit and how can I be filled with it?
How can I resist evil?
How can I resist evil?
Why and how should I tell others?

Why Alpha?

"Great people, food, environment and if you are observant you will see God at work."


"It’s a time to totally focus on what it means to be a Christian and to learn how to be a better Christian"

"A great time away to further your relationship with Christ and getting to know each other"


"If you need a spiritual shot in the arm or a starting off point for new believers this will complete your alpha experience!"

"It was a great experience. The lessons were taught in a casual atmosphere that made learning about Jesus and the Holy Spirit easy and enjoyable. I became acquainted with people at church that I’d never had the opportunity to talk with before. New friendships were formed and old friendships were deepened in our journey to God."


We would love to help answer them.
