I feel like God invited me and drew me back to Him through Alpha, providing such a fun and welcoming environment where I could grasp the basics of having a relationship with Christ.

Alpha for Youth Guest

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions run over 8-12 weeks where anyone can explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. In each session there’s food, a short talk, and discussion in small groups. It runs in churches, homes, bars, coffee shops, prisons and schools all around the world. No two Alphas look the same, but they all have three key things in common: food, a talk, and open discussion.

What does an Alpha look like?

There isn’t really an average Alpha. It runs in churches, homes, bars, coffee shops, prisons and schools all around the world. No two Alphas look the same, but they all have three key things in common: food, a talk, and open discussion.

Food

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 build friendships.

Talk

The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christian faith, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”

Discussion

The discussion allows people to share their thoughts and questions about the talks without being corrected or judged. Our training helps host and helpers facilitate this discussion time and keep it a positive and comfortable experience for guests.

What's included?

Alpha comes with everything you need to get started, and everything is available for free. The English version is available to download for free in Alpha Builder.
