We are by the Church and for the Church.

What is Alpha?

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore faith, ask questions and share their point of view.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe and everyone is welcome. It runs online, in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it! No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: hospitality, a talk and good conversation.

What does an Alpha Session look like?



Whether in person over a meal or virtually with a cup of tea, all sessions start with a time to connect, relax and build friendships. Eating food together creates space for people to connect and share life on a deeper level.



The Alpha talks are designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues of life and unpack the basics of Christian faith, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?” and “How does God guide us?”



The discussion time is an opportunity for people to respond to the talk, hear from others and contribute their own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Alpha is very useful, a simple way of discipling people to Christ, accurate for new beginners, new believers and appropriate for setting them up to be able to be witnesses for Christ. Alpha worked for online engagement because it is simple, interactive, well packaged with formatted videos and it has only three questions. Alpha is more people centred with day to day life questions yet Christ-centred, it models Christ and makes people love to be good friends with Jesus.

Rev. Stephen Kinoti Marangu,
Youth & JCTM Pastor, Methodist Church, Ruaraka

Alpha has been absolute gold in being evangelistic. I’ve found in my own experience, it’s so much easier to speak to someone and to invite them to Alpha, just like I was. I’m a huge supporter, lover and ambassador of Alpha; it completely changed everything about my life, it has been part of my ministry and will continue to be.

Alpha aims to help people to either discover or rediscover the meaning and joy of the Christian message. Alpha is an invaluable tool for evangelization.

The Alpha Youth Series with African interviews is captivating and creatively done to capture the attention of any youthful audience and hook one into it. Alpha Youth Series has this tendency to make you laugh at the humour but at the same time connect with the beautiful message of a need to connect with our saviour…the Lord Jesus Christ. I love it and I believe it will be a powerful tool to reach every young person who will come across it.
