Alpha takes people on a journey often leading to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It enables people to ask their questions, share ideas, build friendships and experience the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Alpha is a parish tool for evangelisation based on hospitality, sharing and open conversation over a series of 10 sessions exploring the key messages of the Christian faith.

Going Deeper Podcast

There’s so much to know about the Catholic faith, but so little time! Join Shane Dwyer and a monthly special guest in an organic discussion about Catholicism, theology and life. If you’re interested in learning more, going deeper or just getting some perspective on Catholicism, tune in for a weekly chat!

faith formation Offerings by Request

Our vision is that every Catholic in the Archdiocese grows in his or her awareness of ongoing faith formation and spiritual renewal is intrinsic to living a Catholic life. We provide an accessible faith formation online course, and come to parishes, communities and groups to provide adult formation by arrangement.

We’d love to talk to you more about how to form adults in your community in their Catholic faith
