How to Run Alpha in Prisons



Alpha generally runs over a period of 13 weeks and can be present shorter or extended as determined by the Alpha Volunteer and Chaplain.

At each 2- 2.5 hour sessions the is fellowship over food and/or drinks, where possible followed by a talk on the subject central to the Christian faith. The talks presented through the Alpha course video series . after the talk, participants divide into pre-arranged small groups, in which they remain for the duration of the Alpha course. The groups provide participants with the opportunity to discuss the talk in an environment where each person is free to ask or say whatever they wish.

Why Alpha in Prisons



Many people in prison feel a desperate sense of loss and have a deep hunger for meaning in life.  Jesus Christ is the only one who can satisfy this hunger. Alpha helps answer some for the questions about the Christian faith and the meaning of life .

The vision of Alpha for Prisons is the evangelisation of our prisons by giving every man and woman in prison the opportunity to come to know Jesus through participating in the Alpha course, and the transformation of society through the establishment of prison ministries in local churches.
