The Alpha course at First Parish explores some of life’s biggest questions and the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal group-based environment.


A brand new Alpha Youth Series has been totally reimagined for today’s youth culture. Through 13 sessions filmed in Vancouver, London, Paris, Rome, Israel, and many other incredible locations, the Alpha Youth Series explores timeless questions about life, faith and God for a new generation. The series offers compelling stories, images, questions, and discussion topics well spread throughout each episode to better engage youth, helping them think about how these issues relate to their lives as they discuss with their friends and leaders in a safe and friendly environment.

Alpha (Christianity 101) is for everyone: people who are well on their Christian journey, newcomers to First Parish, new Christians, nonbelievers who are curious about the idea of faith and following Jesus Christ, couples preparing for marriage, and Christians who want to brush up on the basics.

Join a conversation and see where it goes. Alpha is no-cost, no-pressure and no-commitment. Sessions are ~10 weeks in length; each meeting starts with a free meal and time to relax and socialize.

Our last adult session ran in October. First Parish does not have a class scheduled at this time, though you can click here to find another session near you:  Sign up here!
