Run Alpha 2017-12-19T09:44:45+00:00

What if I told you that Alpha is the most predictably redemptive tool I’ve ever seen in 40 years of ministry? Would you pilot one Alpha group in your church? Just one.

Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church

What does an Alpha look like?

There isn’t really an average Alpha. It can be run in so many different ways. Around the world it is run in churches, bars, homes, coffee shops, prisons and schools. No two Alphas look the same, but there are three key elements in common: food, a talk and open discussion.


Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, every session begins with food. Eating food together creates space for people to connect, relax and build friendships.


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


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.
