Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically running over 14 weeks. Alpha creates a space, online or in person, where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life and God. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. Alpha generally have three key elements: food (unless it is online), a talk and good conversation.
Explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
The most dynamic part of Alpha: everyone have the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in small groups. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

I actually signed up the Alpha Course for a long time friend from Army who just lost his father recently and his business is badly affected. In the end God brought us to the Alpha group instead (me and my wife) at the beginning we took it as a refresher course in faith and we developed friendship with our Alpha group members and heard many touching testimony. We will recommend and introduce our new believer friends and friends who are open to this faith to attend the Alpha course. – Marcus T
It reminds me about my faith from listening to others sharing and see how God works in their life. – Grace Y
i am blessed to be able to attend Alpha together with my wife and our cousin, as well as my cellgroup mate. Getting family and friends to join together in Alpha definitely makes the journey to discover Jesus and God more fulfilling! I was always looking forward to attending Alpha Tues and now that it has ended, my Tues felt empty! More people should be made aware of Alpha so they can also get their pre-believer friends/relatives to join together! – James L
With the help of Alpha Course, my faith in God has strengthened significantly, which was the goal that I set for myself before joining the Alpha Course. I recalled this phrase by Nicky Gumbel during the Alpha Course that I find it so real in my life. He said “Coincidences happen when you pray about it and when you don’t, they don’t.”. I personally encountered numerous “coincidences”, where I did not think that it was God that was speaking to me at that point of time. It was only when I look back on hindsight, it really felt that God is out there watching over and speaking to each and every one of us. How bless we are to have such a loving, caring and faithful God. I recalled the numerous times where I prayed and cried out to God about my problems and God spoke to me through many creative ways (sermons, devotions, daily bread and even the bible). This Alpha Course has been a fruitful one. It showed me the amazing works that God has done and will continue to do so for all of us. He will never stop being the guiding light and saving us from the deepest pit of darkness. He is one true loving God that always provides us with His amazing grace. – Edmond L

The Alpha Course was not only helpful for the participants, but also helped me to renew my knowledge of the foundations and strengthen my relationship with God. It was also inspiring to see new believers come to faith, and how the Holy Spirit demonstrated power through us. – Jessica L
The course helped me see how God can use the online platform for outreach . – Mahesh
I am reminded that Lord faithfully has bring me to pass in each hard season as He has promised. – Jane S
Seeing how the participants grow in faith really encouraged my walk with the Lord and reminded me that if I seek the Lord, the Lord will be there, He’ll open the door whenever I knock and He’ll be right there waiting for me. – Loh LY
