What is the Alpha course?
Alpha is a non-pressurised, fun and informative course. It is a place to share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life. The course is designed primarily for people who don’t go to church or who haven’t been to church in a long time and are interested in the Christian faith.
The Alpha Course began in the late 1970s at HTB as a means of helping new Christians learn more about the Christian faith.
In 1990, former barrister Nicky Gumbel realised the potential of the Alpha Course to appeal to a wider audience, and adapted the course to make it inclusive for anyone interested in the Christian faith.
The growth of Alpha in the UK and worldwide
The Alpha Course spread during the 1990s, initially in the UK and then internationally, as more and more churches and groups found it a helpful and informal way to discuss questions about the Christian faith.
There are now over 55,000 courses worldwide in 166 countries. Alpha is supported by all the major denominations.
