Alpha for Youth & Campus
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions run over 8-12 weeks where anyone can explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. In each session there’s food, a short talk, and discussion in small groups. It runs in churches, homes, cafes and schools all around the world. No two Alphas look the same, but they all have three key things in common: food, watching a video, and having a chat.
Every session begins with food, whether it's a three course meal or a light snack. Eating food together creates space for people to connect, relax and build friendships.
The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack thebasics of Christian faith, addressing questions like "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?" and "How does God guide us?"
The discussion allows people to share their thoughts and questions about the talks without fear of being corrected or judged. Our training helps small group leaders facilitate this discussion time and keep it a positive and comfortable experience for guests.
The Alpha Youth Series
This new exciting resource is a 13-episode film series created to engage the next generation in exploring questions about life, faith and God. Filmed in amazing locations such as Vancouver, London and Jerusalem, the AYS shares compelling stories from all over the world. Each episode, which runs for 20-27 minutes is also interactive, featuring three main discussion questions that are introduced during short breaks.
Since its first launch in 2013, the Alpha Youth Film Series (AYFS) has been run in 49 countries and 19 languages. Introduced in 2018, the new Alpha Youth Series contains content that has been refreshed and updated. Jason Ballard and Ben Woodman return to host the series and are joined by three new co-hosts, Jassie, Landry and Peter.
There are several resources that you can use alongside the AYS, including a Discussion Guide, a Leader's Manual, and Youth Manuals. Various publicity materials are also available. Please contact us if you would like to get hold of these resources!

"Alpha was a good evangelism tool because it provided us with a non-threatening avenue where people from all walks of life were able to come
together to share their stories.…Through Alpha, we were able to build strong friendships and show guests what it means to have a Christian community. .
Alpha allows anyone to ask burning questions without feeling judged. Everyone comes as they are.”
