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.

Encountering Jesus Online

Running Alpha virtually has lowered the barriers to attending Alpha—whether for those who might want to attend but are homebound, parents who have no babysitter, or for people who otherwise wouldn’t feel comfortable stepping inside a church building. Watch Justin’s story to see how a simple invitation to Alpha brought him into a relationship with Jesus and out of homelessness.

Workshops in this Track

Learnings from Asbury on the Power of Prayer

Speaker: Angela Chadwick, Global Director of Prayer, Alpha USA

Alpha’s Global Director of Prayer will interview some of the spiritual leaders involved in the Asbury revival where a chapel worship service caught the attention of our country. You’ll hear stories of how the students were deeply moved by God through the simplest forms of worship and how the leaders made sure the only celebrity on stage was Jesus. You’ll also be amazed by the powerful breakthroughs in young people’s lives through the gentlest of prayers.

Additionally, we will explore how the resurgence of faith in one small American town is relevant to every person in the Church and how it shapes how we share the good news in a good way with this generation.

How to Facilitate Eternal Connections with Jesus

Speaker: Danielle Strickland, Spiritual Leader, Justice Advocate, Communicator, Peacemaker

Encounter is God’s favorite way to spiritual revelation. Why do we emphasize information-formation as our primary means of discipleship? What if we put more time, energy, and effort into facilitating more encounters? Be prepared to discuss together how cultivating curiosity becomes a means to do just that. We will talk techniques, experiences, and new ideas.

Everyday Miracles

Speakers: Dr. Chloe Swart, Associate National Director for Alpha UK, and Dr. Russo Swart, New Wine Cymru Prophetic and Healing Team

This workshop will look at how to heal the sick as a part of our everyday missional lives. Following Chloe’s PhD studying healing miracles in Wales, Chloe found that Christians in Wales were praying for their friends, family, and colleagues, in the gym, in the supermarket, at work; wherever they found themselves, as well as in church services, and Alpha courses. Healing is a missional tool that points toward Jesus. Unpack the theology of healing, while also hearing very practical teaching and demonstration of how to heal the sick in an everyday way.
