What's the point in life? Why is there suffering in the world? What happens when we die? Is forgiveness possible? The Alpha experience is a practical introduction to the Christian faith that gives guests an opportunity to explore the meaning of life. Alpha is fun, relaxed, and totally non-pressured (that's probably why over 19 million people around the world have already done it!). Alpha is a place where no question is off limits.

What Is Beta
Beta is a time of Bible study that aims for faith nurture and small-group building as we look into the Bible together and (re)discover what God’s Word says and what that means for us today. Beta is available for anyone interested in studying the Bible straight from the text in a small group that may include, Alpha graduates, Hillside members, and others who are interested. The Beta Group follows the same schedule as Alpha and it offers a safe place where you can share your convictions and questions, build community around the dinner table, and keep growing in your relationship with God and with others in the body of Christ.
The Beta Group meets in the church and uses the same schedule as the Alpha Experience: meeting on Tuesday evenings, with supper at 6:30 p.m., followed by a brief time of worship, and then Bible study until about 9:00 p.m. Childcare is provided.
