What to Expect


Experience Alpha is like a Director's Cut video - you'll get a 'behind the scenes' view of how Alpha isn't just another program - it is actually an integral part of HTB's church strategy and culture.


We are truly blessed blessed to have an incredible group this year for Experience Alpha 2017, and we would love for this time to spark friendships and partnerships that will last a lifetime.  Below, you can download the current list of people attending Experience Alpha 2017.   

Encountering God

Our hope and prayer is that our time together at EA London will give you time to encounter God in new, exciting ways. We’re praying for you!
