Runnymede Community Church - Bloor West Village Toronto Ontario Canada



Ever had questions about life? Maybe while out for a drive, going for a walk, working out at the gym? Maybe when you lay your head on your pillow at night and those questions flood your mind…

Who am I? What am I doing here? Is there more to life than this?

Alpha is a safe place where you can get together to enjoy food, watch a short intriguing video (30 minutes!), then have a chance to voice your thoughts, opinions and questions.

Explore these questions of life together with a group of congenial people.

From the Alpha Canada Web site:¬†At each session, people enjoy great food, laughter and learning in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is seen as too simple or too hostile… questions like:

  • Is there a God?
  • Why am I here?
  • Where did I come from?
  • Where am I going?
  • What came first, the chicken or the egg?

To get an idea of what Alpha is about, we invite you to check out the #TryAlpha video preview on Alpha’s YouTube Channel.
