Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of Christian faith. It is a Parish tool for evangelisation based on welcome, hospitality, sharing and prayer. Alpha is designed primarily for people who do not go to Church, but it also provides a fresh opportunity for everyone to look at the basics of the Christian faith.
Alpha has a range of resources to assist Parishes in the important task of nurturing the formation of missionary disciples. Alpha can be a powerful tool for nurturing active lay participation in evangelisation and developing competent lay leaders for the Parish community.
Alpha Australia has staff to assist Parishes and Dioceses to train Parish teams to run Alpha. Alpha is available in a range of formats: Alpha (Nicky Gumbel) & Alpha (Jamie Haith) designed for adults and the Alpha Youth Film Series designed for secondary school aged students. Alpha is available in many languages and can be run in homes, Parishes, cafes, schools etc. There is also a range of Parenting and Marriage resources.
