Alpha is a tool for the New Evangelization that is being used by thousands of Catholic parishes in over 70 countries around the world. Alpha is also run by churches of many other denominations to introduce people to the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. This has led to more than 24 million people around the world experiencing Alpha. In particular, it is attracting many young people who are asking the question, ‘Is there more to life than this?’
Alpha USA was birthed in the 1990’s as a response to the way we saw the Holy Spirit using Alpha as a tool for American churches. Alpha exists to serve and support churches in making disciples of Jesus Christ, to help with the re-evangelization of the nations and the transformation of society.
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. It runs in churches, bars, coffee shops and homes all around the globe. Typically, Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. The talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment.
