Even in the midst of a year of uncertainty and challenge, we are excited to say that God is continuing to do amazing work. Churches across Canada ran 4,859 Alpha courses in 2020, with 1,622 of them for our youth, including 561 churches who ran Alpha for youth online!
These are exciting days and we believe there is an opportunity like never before for the next generation to share the hope of the gospel in every corner of our nation. Your donation will help ensure Alpha resources are free and accessible to churches and communities across the country!
Nick grew up in the church but rejected his faith and walked away from Jesus in his late teens. He was invited to an Alpha online and Jesus radically transformed his life.
Our desire was to respond to the needs of the church as quickly as possible and so on March 26th, 13 days after in-person gatherings came to a grinding halt, we started training churches to run Alpha online. At that first webinar, we had over 480 leaders attend and since that time 4000 leaders have participated in our webinars leading to over 2000 Alphas online!
A group of students across different churches in Calgary, AB joined together to run Alpha online for their friends. The online space helped create community for youth who were feeling isolated and alone, and gave them a chance to ask questions about life, faith and God.
