Uni life provides an amazing opportunity to invite your friends to explore life’s big questions! Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith, such as: Who is Jesus?, Why did Jesus die? and How can I have faith? It is designed to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
All resources are available free online including; training videos, promotional materials and talks, providing you with all the tools you need to you feel supported, envisioned and equipped to discuss faith with your friends on campus.

A project from The Franciscan Friars TOR produced by 4PM media, 'The Wild Goose' is a 14 part video series completely focused on the Holy Spirit. Fr. Dave Pivonka TOR passionately guides you through these sessions on the Spirit.
"The ancient Celt's called the Holy Spirit, 'the wild goose'. There's a wildness about it that the Spirit represents. This Holy Spirit that comes in power, this Holy Spirit that comes with the breath of life. That simply isn't a lot of people's experience. More times than I care to remember, people have come up to me and they've said, 'Fr Dave, I've never heard such a thing!'"

Sycamore is a new programme of evangelisation and catechesis for use in parishes, chaplaincies, schools and other settings. It consists of ten films that explore some of the core questions often put to Christian believers.
Sycamore is, first of all, a tool for ‘primary evangelisation’ - to help those who have no Christian background or very little Christian commitment to explore the meaning of Christianity. However, it was developed in a Catholic context, and touches on some themes that will be especially important for Catholic communities, such as the Bible and the Christian Tradition, and the sacraments.
