Alpha Mid Atlantic exists to help you run the Alpha course effectively and to give everyone in the Mid Atlantic region the opportunity to attend an Alpha course near their home or workplace.

We work with a growing network of churches and ministries throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware and Southern New Jersey to train and equip teams to run Alpha. As a result, more people are encountering Christ, and churches are being transformed as their people are activated to share their faith in Jesus through Alpha.

We desire to see the Kingdom of God made known in our post-Christian society. Alpha was birthed into a similar cultural landscape in London where people were hungry for a safe space that allowed them to ask questions, express doubts, and explore faith. Alpha provides that safe place to explore faith and ask questions. As a result, we are seeing the growth of Alpha courses in many different contexts in this region.

You can find Alpha courses running in churches, youth groups, coffee shops, colleges, bars and restaurants, food pantries, pregnancy crisis centers, prisons, homes and in the workplace.

Whether you’re looking for an Alpha course to attend or you’d like to run Alpha at your church or for a group of friends, we’re here to help.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
— Matthew 28:19-20

Church Endorsement

“Alpha has given us a consistently simple and fun way to welcome people on the margins into our lives as a church family. It has taught us how to listen attentively, empathize with people’s life journey and consider their sincere questions with love and respect. Whether in prisons, coffee shops, community outreach centers or a person’s living room, Alpha keeps the conversation relevant and accessible to all. We love running Alpha at West Shore because we get to be with people as they come to know Jesus. The evidence of new life is undeniable!”
- Renee Blanchard, Multiply and Strategic Initiatives Coordinator
West Shore Free Church
