Alpha – Explore life, faith & meaning

Alpha is an 11-week course that creates a space, online or in person, where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life and God.

Alpha in a Catholic context is also available for equipping your parish in its mission to help people encounter Jesus.

Alpha Series

Alpha Film Series – The Alpha Film Series is designed for today’s audience. It was filmed all around the world, and features interviews with world-famous leaders and inspiring stories. Two new hosts, Toby Flint and Gemma Hunt, join Nicky Gumbel to unpack the basics of the Christian faith in an updated and engaging way.

Alpha Youth Series – Alpha Youth Series is designed to engage students in conversations about life, faith and Jesus. Discussion time is interspersed throughout the short talks to make it simpler for them to share their thoughts and questions.

Alpha with Nicky Gumbel – This series features Alpha pioneer Nicky Gumbel presenting each topic with humorous anecdotes, personal experiences and Biblical relevancy. The talks (29 minutes each) were filmed at Holy Trinity Brompton, where Alpha first began.


The Vicariate for Faith & Mission have no Alpha courses planned at this time.
