We make running Alpha as easy as possible.
MyAlpha helps you discover resources and craft a plan for your specific context. Best of all… It’s free!
Alpha has traditionally only been offered in person. Since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Alpha is now available in a completely online format. Many churches now realize they will always offer both in person and online Alpha courses. Find out more about using Alpha in an online format.
