By Becca Triplett|2018-01-17T16:12:34-05:00Jan 17, 2018|Alpha|

Hi, my name is Becca and I work with the Alpha program. My job includes working with the taskforce and creating a welcoming atmosphere; so, the jobs that seem “behind the scenes” often fall to me. Making sure there’s food for the guests on time? Coordinating volunteers to serve the [...]

Is Alpha for Me?

By Michael King|2018-01-09T18:05:03-05:00Jan 9, 2018|Alpha|

Have you heard about Alpha? Maybe you have, that it's a safe place to explore the meaning of life. Or maybe you've heard that it's a free meal an nursery care. Maybe you've only heard of Alpha but know nothing about it. Or maybe you're apprehensive. Whatever it is you've [...]

Rooted: What Is It?

Just like Alpha, it's 10-weeks long and small-group oriented. We'll discuss topics such as, "What is my purpose?" "What are my spiritual gifts?" "How [...]

Alpha. What IS it?! — Eat. Listen. Discuss.

If you've stepped foot on Truro's campus, you'll know we run a thing called "Alpha." Aside from being the first letter of the greek alphabet, and sounding like you're half-way to stepping into a frat initiation, you may be wondering: WHAT IS ALPHA?!? Alpha is a 10-week community gathered around [...]

Alpha — You Never Know.

By Jason Lalone|2017-09-13T15:29:05-04:00Sep 5, 2017|Alpha, News|

Questions, discussion and free food are to Alpha like coffee shops are to lattes, or baseball games to hotdogs, or the Fall season to chilly nights. But you may wonder: "what are some of the topics we discuss at Alpha?" Alpha is a place where anyone is welcome to freely [...]

Rooted: An “After Alpha” Experience

By |2017-11-15T12:08:44-05:00Aug 8, 2017|Alpha|

At Truro we believe the action happens in circles, not rows. This is why we invite people to explore faith in small groups around a dinner table (Alpha) instead of in a classroom. But what happens after Alpha? In order for us to be truly formed as Christians we need [...]

Be childish!

By Jason Lalone|2017-11-15T12:08:44-05:00Apr 19, 2017|Alpha|

As soon as we start putting together our own thoughts as a child, we start to question. We want answers to how and why things work: Why do I have to go to school? Why are my parents telling me to not eat chocolate all day? How does this clock [...]

Your Kids love Alpha, Too!

This past year, my wife Hannah and I had a baby. Well, she did most of the having, but our baby Isaiah was born last April. You’ve probably seen him, he’s the one who is objectively the most beautiful baby boy to be born this century. Isaiah is now nine [...]

To My Amazement, Alpha.

By Jason Lalone|2017-11-15T12:08:45-05:00Jan 30, 2017|Alpha|

In 2012 I took this course called Alpha. I had heard about Alpha through Truro Anglican Church and decided that the opportunity for free food on a Friday night sounded delightful. To my amazement, the food was excellent! But more than that the people were actually friendly and welcoming. It didn’t [...]
