Welcome to Alpha in the Gulf

By the Church, For the Church


Is there more to life than this? The Alpha Course and other courses we offer are an effective form of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ when done by and through the local church. By focusing on the essentials of the Christian faith, it opens the door for Alpha to be used in almost any context so that everyone has the opportunity to see their own and their friends’ lives transformed by the Gospel.

Showing the community side of Trying Alpha and exploring the Christian Faith with all generations and races

Try Alpha

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore faith, ask questions and share their point of view.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the world and everyone’s welcome. It runs online, in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alpha’s look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: hospitality, a talk and good discussion.

Run Alpha

Alpha is a tool built for local churches based on hospitality, sharing and open conversation. The same Alpha content is run all over the world, by Christians of all traditions, and provides a common expression of proclamation, service and witness. Millions of people have experienced Alpha in over 100 countries and over 100 languages around the world.
