Alpha is a series of interactive sessions to discuss the Christian faith in an informal, fun and friendly environment. Alpha is a series of 15 sessions, looking at topics including ‘Who is Jesus?’ and ‘Why and how do I pray?’, with the option of a day away. Alpha meets on Tuesday evenings with doors opening for food at 6:30pm. We’ll watch an exciting video followed by discussion in small groups. Please register to assure we’ve got a meal ready for you!
Who is it for?
Alpha is for everyone; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
You don’t have to come for the whole term – just pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure, no follow up and no charge.
The Alpha Fall 2019 course will be held at the HIF Centre, 8c, Ton That Thuyet, Cau Giay, Hanoi

Doors open for dinner at 6:30pm and we will finish by 9:00pm every week.
Alpha Day Away
The Alpha Day Away is a relaxed day at a nice location in Hanoi that offers a great opportunity to hear more about the Christian faith and to better get to know the other participants. Everyone in the current Alpha course is welcome to come. Location details will be updated nearer the time.
If you have any questions, you can contact us via email.
What if I missed the first week?
It doesn’t matter if you missed the first week of Alpha – you can catch up online at any point. Anyone is able to register up until session 4; after that we would encourage you to sign up for our next Alpha course and come along from session 1.
I’m not based in Hanoi. Can I still try Alpha?
Yes, Alpha runs in churches, bars, coffee shops and homes all around the globe. Find an Alpha near you here.
