Alpha is a globally recognized program born out of the need for a safe space for people to explore their faith and ask the big questions about life, faith, and Jesus. Open to believers and skeptics alike, Alpha invites everyone to explore their faith freely and on their own terms.

This innovative approach to faith exploration provides a platform for open discussions without the fear of judgment. Alpha is structured to give people the freedom to ask questions and make a decision about Jesus on their own terms. This approach to faith exploration and learning aligns with the needs of many people in our rapidly changing world, where individuals are searching for meaning and purpose in life.

Prayer is another crucial topic explored in this message. Often shrouded in mystery, prayer is a powerful tool that works with God to effect change in our lives, the church, and the world. Three key types of prayers were discussed: prayers for the church, prayers for ourselves, and prayers for others.

The power of prayer is often underestimated. However, prayer can change God's mind and motivate him to action. It's a partnership with God to bring lost people to their true life. Bold prayer is an essential aspect of our spiritual journey, as it can break through barriers and bring about freedom and transformation.

In a rapidly changing world, the role of the church is critical. We must reflect on whether creating a 'safe bubble' for our children is a wise choice or whether we should be preparing them for the world. The church should be a safe space for people to explore their faith and ask the big questions of life. We must also be bold in praying for others and using our faith to help those around us.

This message invites you to join in this transformative journey of faith, exploration, and outreach. It challenges us to explore our faith, pray boldly, and reach out to others. This journey is not just about individual spiritual growth, but also about our collective growth as a community and a church.
