What is Student Alpha?

Do you want to join? Send a message to Rosa Huttenga: Whatsapp +316 4687 7228 or email .

Student Alpha exists of 10 sessions and a Saturday. The most important topics of life and the Christian faith will pass by.

The course is accessible, cozy and fun, and is given and supported by all Christian churches. Below you will see which topics will be covered each evening. The program of the evenings looks as following:

6.30PM – Diner
We will eat diner together at the start of each evening, which gives us the opportunity to get to know each other better.
8.00PM – Introduction topic
There will be an introductory talk by a speaker who will tell us more about the theme of that evening.
8.30PM – Small group
After the introductory talk, we will split up in fixed small groups to discuss the topic and there will be plenty of room for asking questions. No question is too simple, weird or threatening, you can ask whatever you want!
10PM – Drink
For the ones that like to stick around, there will be a social drink to close off the evening and have a good time together.

Something for me?

Everybody is invited and more than welcome to join at Alpha! People come to Student Alpha for all kinds of different reasons. Some are curious to know if there is more to life, others have just become a Christian. Other students want to learn more about the Christian faith or the Bible, some are wondering if God even exists and are willing to find out. Whatever reason you have, you are welcome to join us and explore together!

Whatever question you have, Student Alpha is a place where no question is regarded too simple or too weird. All opinions are respected.

Whatever trouble you are facing, Student Alpha is a place where you can ask questions with the freedom to share or to listen. Whatever difficulty you may be dealing with: uncertainties in your work or studies, complexities in your relationships and friendships, illness and discomfort, and so on. You are welcome with everything you are and everything you are struggling with.
If you are looking for deeper friendships… A couple of the closest and most long-term friendships were formed during Student Alpha. These friendships go beyond standard questions like ‘What’s your name?’ and ‘What do you do?’. You can form personal contacts and talk about things you are experiencing.

When is it?

Alpha starts September 21st but if you miss the first nights it is still possible to join! Don’t hesitate to contact us at any moment, the more the merrier 🙂 !
