What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars – you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
Why run Alpha?
- Alpha transforms congregations into all members being evangelistic in a non-threatening way
- Alpha builds listening relationships with lasting impact
- Alpha helps churches reach out to and welcome the unchurched
- Alpha releases the evangelism to God and His Holy Spirit – and not our work
