'Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison'
Hebrews 13 | Alpha in Prisons
Re-imagining how the Church shares life, faith and Jesus
Prisoners often experience a sense of loss and have a hunger to find purpose and meaning in life. Alpha can give them a chance to ask life’s big questions and find out about the Christian faith in a safe, informal and friendly environment.
Alpha Prisons Nationwide Prayer
Join us as we set aside time to specifically intercede for those in prison and working in prison across Australia and open doors for the Gospel to be shared, even across the globe.
Every last Thursday of each month at 12:00pm AEST
23 February, 30 March, 27 April, 25 May, 29 June, 27 July, 31 August, 28 September, 26 October, 30 November
Alpha is sustainable because the local church carries the workload of planning, hosting and presenting Alpha, under the supervision of the Prison Chaplain. Alpha is run in full cooperation of the prison authorities.
Alpha has been attended by millions of people around the globe. In 2017, over 52,000 people experienced Alpha in all kinds of prisons. Resources can be adapted and training materials are continually updated to ensure relevance for the prison context.
Alpha volunteers are required to attend contextual and security training before they start to work in prisons. Alpha prison training is provided by our National Alpha Office in partnership with the prisons.
