Equipping the church with tools to talk about faith
Alpha is an 11-week course that creates a space where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life and God. Signing up to run an Alpha Course gives you access to a range of materials to help you promote, organise, and run the course.
Alpha is a tool built for local churches based on hospitality, sharing and open conversation. The same Alpha content is run all over the world, by Christians of all traditions, and provides a common expression of proclamation, service and witness. Millions of people have experienced Alpha in over 100 countries and over 100 languages around the globe.
Every session begins with food, whether it’s a three-course meal or a light snack. Eating food together creates space for people to connect, relax and share life on a deeper level.
The Alpha talks are designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues of life and faith and unpack the basics of Christian belief, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”
The discussion time is an opportunity for people to respond to the talk, hear from others, and contribute their own perspective in an honest, friendly, and open environment.
