Alpha is an amazing tool to reach the lost and catalyze mission and community in the local church, and we have seen great growth on our Alpha course these past few years.  Our last Alpha had over 250 people at our Santa Monica location and we launched two new courses, in Malibu and Pasadena.   The Alpha Masterclass is our way to share with you what we have learnt. Over 40 people from pastoral teams across the country attended our last Alpha Masterclass, and we would love you to come to our next one in February.
