Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically running over 14 weeks. Alpha creates a space, online or in person, where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life and God. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. Alpha generally have three key elements: food (unless it is online), a talk and good conversation.
Explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
The most dynamic part of Alpha: everyone have the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in small groups. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Very inspiring testimony that leads me to transform.
Alpha has helped to build up and reinforce the Christian foundation on each topic. I begin to dwell on what is shown in video; including the group sharing.
I get to better understand the fundamentals of Christianity and learn how I can grow and develop myself in my faith in God.
The healing process in the Alpha program.
As a young believer, this course helps me to deepen my knowledge on Christianity. I feel a sense of belonging and a closer relationship with God after the Alpha program.
I’m a relatively new Christian (3month old). At the beginning of my journey, I doubted myself why I choose to be a Christian, and I was afraid that my choice was not by my own will and would be just a temporary decision because I’m dealing with some personal issues at the moment. However, at the same time I really want to believe in God, and I started to pray to God, telling him that I really want to believe in him and asking him to give me strength to have faith on him. And that same day I joined my first Alpha online session which really comforted me alot; and ever since I’m really sure about my faith now. I know this journey of faith will have it’s ups and downs, but I know that God is always there and I can continue to trust in him, pray and ask for his strength to help me to get closer to him. I’m glad that I met people in Alpha which I believe will help me in my journey to get closer to God.
Hear from our volunteers!
Learning to give up your own time to serve God. God blesses us in return as we give our time for Him. – Charity
The opportunity to encourage a participant and help her to recognise her gift of tongues. She also reached out when she had questions in her spiritual journey. Encouraged another participant to step up in Hokkien cell; she was encouraged and commented that she knows why we meet again after the Israel pilgrimage trip.
Glad to be a blessing to sisters-in-Christ. – Regina
Met up with a diversified group of believers all at different stage of their lives and witnessed the building of stronger relationship and establishment of trust resulting in open sharing and praying for each other brought tremendous joy and satisfaction in serving. I have also benefited with skills of how to handle and collaborate with co-workers. – Billy
Experienced the power and love of God flowing through as I prayed for the participants. – Vincent
Involving in Alpha helped me to enhance the impartation of faith in God to myself and others. Fellowship with believers and new Christians and witnessing the miracles of how pre-believers can be born again. – Tan
I’ve seen the needs that God meets for the different folks in many different ways this season! And through my 2 runs of serving, I learned how to be a better facilitator at the same time. – Ivan
