Alpha Online

Running Alpha online allows guests to join the conversation from wherever they are—across town, across the country, or around the world.

Sharing Hope

With a global pandemic came a culture-shifting, generation-shaping opportunity. A disruptive and painful moment in history has brought about one of the biggest opportunities of our lifetime to share the love of Jesus. As people continue to adjust to new realities, they have renewed questions and need a space to wrestle with the big questions of life. Moving Alpha into the online space has given many the chance to connect with others and discover a relationship with Jesus. Watch just how Alpha Online has been changing lives.

The three ingredients of Alpha:


We are wired for connection. Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table or a quick online catch-up, times of connecting are important. People long to be seen and heard. Alpha helps create a space for meaningful connection. Whether in person or online, all sessions start with a time of connection to 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 is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic in a small group format. Guests hear from others and contribute their own honest perspective in a judgment-free environment.
