Explore Alpha

New to Alpha?  Not quite ready to jump in? 

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. Explore Alpha introduces you to the story of Alpha and why it works. You'll also learn about Alpha's 7 best practices and how these can help prepare you for a successful Alpha online or in-person.

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. This is a great opportunity for teams, staff an/or decision makers to explore the possibilities of Alpha together! In addition to regularly scheduled events, we are 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
