Alpha is a ten-week course about the basics of the Christian faith developed at Holy Trinity Brompton, Anglican Church in London, England. It enables people to explore the validity and relevance of Christianity in an informal, friendly environment that allows for plenty of discussion. Alpha is both an effective evangelistic tool for those who are investigating Christianity for the first time, and a means for churchgoers to deepen their faith.

There are two parts to an Alpha course: the training and the course itself. The training sessions equip the leaders and helpers to confidently lead a successful Alpha course. No prior experience or special knowledge is required. The course itself has been carefully fine-tuned over the years, so that it can be used successfully by different denominations and groups of all sizes.


The Alpha Course

During 10 weekly sessions, a 3- or 4-session weekend retreat on the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and a closing dinner program, interested adults are given the opportunity to explore authentic Christianity. Large-group sessions and small-group discussions combine to create a safe place to ask honest questions about life, faith, and God. Sessions address these questions:


  • Christianity: Boring, Untrue, and Irrelevant?
  • Who Is Jesus?
  • Why Did Jesus Die?
  • How Can I Be Sure Of My Faith?
  • Why and How Should I Read the Bible?
  • Why and How Do I Pray?
  • Who is the Holy Spirit?
  • What Does the Holy Spirit Do?
  • How Can I Be Filled with the Spirit?
  • How Can I Resist Evil?
  • How Does God Guide Us?
  • Why and How Should We Tell Others?
  • Does God Heal Today?
  • What About the Church?
  • How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?
