What is Alpha?

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. It’s a ten-week course run in churches, coffee shops, prisons and homes worldwide. Essentially, Alpha is a safe place to explore life’s biggest questions. Alpha creates an environment of hospitality, where people can discover and develop a relationship with Jesus.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone. No question is out of bounds and you’re free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity, and everyone is welcome. We encourage anyone, whether you are new to faith or have been a follower of Christ for many years, to attend Alpha.

The Alpha Course will be held Saturdays from 9 am until 11 am in Lenox Hall starting in January 23 – March 13. To pre-register please fill out the form below:


“Alpha was the best thing I ever did. It helped answer some huge questions and to find a simple empowering faith in my life.”
– Bear Grylls, TV Adventurer
“Alpha is both wise and deep. It offers an unapologetically solid gospel presentation with a safe space for dialogue, leaving room for God, by His Spirit, to change people’s hearts and lives. If you want to mobilize your church to reach out, this program will help!”
– Danielle Strickland, The Salvation Army

“Alpha does something that is really, really rare in our culture. It provides a safe space for people to ask whatever questions they have without fear of judgment.”

– Jon Tyson, Church of the City, NYC

“We have been doing Alpha for over 10 years at New Life. Alpha is the best way I know that allows a local church to effectively keep outreach and evangelism as a top priority.”

– Pete Scazzero, Author of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality and founder of New Life Fellowship Church, NY

“I think the secret behind Alpha is the safe community it creates. Relationships are always relevant. A place where you can ask anything, you can say anything and you know you are not going to be judged.”
– Dave Ferguson, President of Exponential, Community Christian Church, IL
