what is Alpha
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. All over the world, from Tijuana to Tokyo, people run Alpha and invite their local community to explore the Christian faith. Over 29 million people in 169 countries and 112 languages have tried Alpha. Typically run over eleven weeks, each session looks at a different question that people can have about faith and is designed to create conversation. There’s no pressure or charge; it’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
What does Alpha look like?
There isn’t really an average Alpha. Alpha is run in local communities all around the world, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, bars, prisons, parks, universities, schools, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
