What is Alpha?

Share life, faith, hope and Jesus at Alpha

What is Alpha

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore life faith and meaning




Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick online catch-up, times of connecting are important. It’s no different at Alpha.


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.



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

One of the most important parts of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and discuss in a small group. 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.

In Person

In churches, cafes, prisons, schools, at home, anywhere people can gather, Alpha can run. 

You can enjoy meals together, watch the Alpha talks together, and sit around a  table, classroom, or lounge room to have a safe and honest conversation.



Did you know that Alpha is just as effective online? We didn't. Until COVID-19, Alpha was all run in person. Now churches all across Australia are running Alpha online for people who are unable to meet in person due to a wide variety of reasons.

Alpha is adaptable. You can start Alpha in person with full confidence that should circumstances change, you will be able to move online with ease for you and your participants. Our team will support you every step of the way. 

The part we all play in God's work of evangelisation does not stop, no matter what. 

The gospel is 100% free. Alpha is too.
