Giving to Alpha
Alpha is 100% funded by donors like you, allowing us to make it completely free to churches who run Alpha.
When the church is gifted with Alpha, the return is far beyond anything we can see or imagine today, and we know the church is being blessed and the gospel is spreading across our country and the globe. Will you consider a gift to Alpha and help make this possible for more people in the world to experience?
Help share life, faith & Jesus
In 2018, over 5,400 Alphas were run in Canada for over 120,000 guests, hosted by more than 2,200 churches and 41,000+ volunteers.
This represents thousands of invitations, faith conversations, and decisions made to follow Jesus.
Alpha helps equip the Church and its people in their mission to share the Gospel of Jesus. Alpha is run by churches to create a place for people within their community to invite friends, neighbours and co-workers to hear the Gospel of Jesus, around a table with a meal, in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
Will you join us to help support and equip people in Canada to share the Gospel through Alpha?
In October, churches from the Toronto area joined together for an Alpha Weekend. We caught up with some of the guests and volunteers during the weekend to hear about their experience.
Jason Normore recently planted a church in the heart of downtown St. John’s, NL. With many attending with little to no Christian background, he decided to run Alpha.

What will my gift go towards?
Your gift impacts guests on Alpha, empowers Christians to share life, faith and Jesus with others, and equips churches across Canada to reach their communities.

I was expecting awkward conversations about my faith, but to my surprise, the videos were humorous, interactive and incredibly welcoming. I found myself going back, wanting to learn more. Now a year later, where I’ve decided to give my life to God, I look back and am so thankful that I was invited to Alpha.
