What is Alpha?
The Alpha course is a 15 session, ten week practical introduction
to the Christian faith. It is designed primarily for non-churchgoers and those who have recently become Christians. It was
established at Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) over twenty years ago and there are now more than 17,000 Alpha courses
throughout the UK and overseas. It is running in 120 countries and has been translated into 32 languages.
Alpha is a flexible and practical model which can work for any group of any size. Churches and
Christian organisations of every background and denomination are discovering it to be a simple
and effective way of presenting the gospel of Christ in a clear and non-threatening manner to
people from all walks of life.
