Explore Alpha

New to Alpha? 

Come explore why 30,000 churches and organizations around the world have used Alpha as a tool to help reach millions of people to discover Jesus. Based on hospitality, sharing and open conversation, Alpha creates a place, online or in person, where people are excited to bring their friends for conversation about faith, life and God. Explore Alpha introduces you to the story of Alpha and why it works. It will give you an understanding of what a typical Alpha Session looks like, the culture behind it, and best practices of running a successful Alpha.

Explore Alpha is run online and is a general overview that will introduce you to Alpha in multiple contexts, including Alpha Youth and Alpha in a Catholic Context. We are also happy to provided custom tailored introductions to a specific church group or organization. Just reach out to anyone on staff to let us know how we can help.

Run Alpha

Ready to begin? 

Run Alpha Training provides everything you need to get started and experience what it’s like to run Alpha both in-person and online. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic the team at Alpha New England would travel to different locations across the region to provide a full day (6 hour) interactive training around all facets of running an Alpha course. Until meeting in person is again feasible, trainings will take  place on line via Zoom. (After the pandemic restrictions lift, we will be able to off both in person and on line trainings!)

Run Alpha Training will help you learn how to run Alpha well in any context while preparing you to launch your own Alpha, regardless of your setting. The online training is split into two Zoom sessions, each two hours long.

Part I: What is Alpha, 7 Best practices, Small Groups, My Alpha (getting started with the alphausa.org website)

Part II: The Alpha weekend or day away (in person and on line), Prayer Ministry, Tips for running Alpha online
