What is Alpha?
Food. Talk. Discuss. Grow.
Alpha creates an environment of hospitality where people can bring their friends, family and work colleagues to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view.
Alpha makes it easy to invite friends to have a meal, hear a short teaching talk, and have an opportunity to explore life’s biggest questions in a safe and respectful way.
Alpha began in 1977 at Holy Trinity Brompton in London as a course for new Christians. By 1998 over 10,000 churches were sponsoring Alpha in their churches. By 2008 over 10,000,000 people had experienced Alpha. By 2016, over 29,000,000 people have experienced Alpha in 169 countries and 112 languages.
