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?

  1. Alpha transforms congregations into all members being evangelistic in a non-threatening way
  2. Alpha builds listening relationships with lasting impact
  3. Alpha helps churches reach out to and welcome the unchurched
  4. Alpha releases the evangelism to God and His Holy Spirit – and not our work
