The Foodbank Project is thrilled to announce that they’re expanding again. They’ve made a new hub in Lower Hutt at Hutt City Salvation Army!

Liz and the team at the new Hutt City hub received their first delivery on Tuesday 9 October. They’re so excited to be part of The Foodbank Project, to receive the generous donations of the Hutt donors and to be able to help more people in the Lower Hutt community. Liz says that on average, they hand out 20-30 food parcels every week to around 90 people (both individuals and families).

“We’re thrilled to be joining with the Foodbank Project! Numbers of food parcels distributed has doubled over the last twelve months indicating increasing stress on folk to make ends meet. Thanks so much for your support.” – Liz, Hutt City Salvation Army Community Ministries Manager

Everyone Explores…Life, Faith & Meaning.

All of us explore. We ask questions, we seek answers. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explores all the big questions of life with food, a talk and open discussion.

It will be on Tuesday nights from 7:30-9:30pm starting on 24th July and runs for 11 weeks, plus one (optional) weekend away.
Supper is included and it is completely free of charge.

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.

Each session looks at a different question, and is assigned to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same – they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

What’s Involved?

Food – Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Talk – The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”

Discussion – Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.
