We are by the Church and for the Church.

What is Alpha?

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore faith, ask questions and share their point of view.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe and everyone is welcome. It runs online, in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it! No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: hospitality, a talk and good conversation.

What does an Alpha Session look like?


Whether in person over a meal or virtually with a cup of tea, all sessions start with a time to connect, relax and build friendships. Eating food together creates space for people to connect 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 unpack the basics of Christian faith, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?” 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.

Running Alpha at The Elevation Church has enabled us as a church to engage seekers and young believers in discussions that deepen their understanding of the basic tenets of our Christian faith – thereby helping them to gain stability, and in turn deepening our faith as a church family.

Pastor Godman Akinlabi,
Lead Pastor, Elevation Church, Nigeria

Alpha has been absolute gold in being evangelistic. I’ve found in my own experience, it’s so much easier to speak to someone and to invite them to Alpha, just like I was. I’m a huge supporter, lover and ambassador of Alpha; it completely changed everything about my life, it has been part of my ministry and will continue to be.

Simon Chittenden,
Pastor, GodFirst Jozi East, South Africa

Alpha aims to help people to either discover or rediscover the meaning and joy of the Christian message. Alpha is an invaluable tool for evangelization.

One thing that truly impacted me about Alpha is its simplicity that creates an atmosphere where there is no intimidation and people feel very comfortable. I believe Alpha is African because it involves eating together which is African and that Alpha has the power to bridge the gap before evangelism happens.

Apostle Julius Suubi,
Founder Highway of Holiness Ministries and Senior Pastor Exploits Worship Centre,Kenya

Alpha online is important to us because it brings the gospel to where people are. We realized that the harvest is online yet the harvesters are offline.

Rev. Patrick Kuchio,
Christ is the Answer Ministries, Kenya

Alpha is 100% free, including all the coaching your team needs to get started.
