Once you have decided on an Alpha launch date, please also feel free to print the postcards and banners to promote your Alpha in your church. However, we kindly ask that you refrain from sharing any images digitally, for example, on your church websites and social media accounts, until 1 September 2016.

We thank you in advance for adhering to the guidelines we’ve agreed with his team. We know all of you will help us represent Alpha in the best and most unified way possible.
