You're Invited! To an exclusive gathering for senior church leaders

Alpha Collective is an invite-only global gathering that provides a unique opportunity for pastors from strategic churches to connect and engage in discussion with leaders from around the world representing a diverse range of denominations and cultural expressions.

About Alpha Collective

At this invite-only event you will experience Alpha at its birthplace, Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB), and see firsthand how Alpha culture has deeply impacted and shaped this local church which has had global impact resulting in millions of people discovering Jesus.

In a relational, conversational format, we will engage with the global Alpha team, HTB staff, and key leaders from around the world representing a broad range of styles and denominations; participate in conversations around the challenges and opportunities of church engagement, evangelism, navigating our cultural realities, and Christian unity; and highlight what God is doing around the world to reach every person.

You will hear the vision around Alpha’s hub church network—working in partnership for greater kingdom impact and hear from current hub churches as they share learnings around ways to improve, grow and extend Alpha.

Throughout our time together, we will intentionally create space to encounter God and provide opportunities for you to be encouraged, inspired, and refreshed through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

We anticipate great times of discovery, new friendships, and encountering God together.

We hope you can join us!

ENCOUNTER

This track is full of amazing main-stage speakers who will showcase the power of prayer in every generation, equip you to live a naturally supernatural life and train you to heal as Jesus did. Senior pastors, church leaders, non-profit leaders, this track is you!

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.
