Stress, fear, anxiety and issues of control were constantly present in her life. She reached a point where she felt not being alive might be better and was in a deep dark hole that was incredibly difficult to climb out of. She started to go to church but kept to herself and tried to stay under the radar.
She attended an Alpha shortly after and experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit on the Alpha Weekend. She invited Jesus into her life and since then everything has changed for her.
“Since welcoming Jesus, it’s like everything’s changed. Life is amazing. Life is so good. I’m full of joy.”
– Lisa, Alpha Guest
Thanks to generous friends of Alpha, all donations during the Christmas season will be doubled with a $300,000 matching gift.
That means your donation will go twice as far in helping ensure Alpha resources are free and accessible to churches and communities across the country!
In an effort to find a place for his friend, who was an atheist but curious about Christianity, to ask questions about faith, Shawn became an online Alpha leader. He invited 20 friends, eight stayed for the whole course and four became Christians!
Since March 2020, we started training churches to run Alpha online. At that first online training, we had over 480 leaders attend and since that time 4,000 leaders have been trained, leading to over 2,000 online Alphas! Forest City Community Church in London, ON is just one of these church communities impacted by running Alpha online.
Churches are equipping their communities to run Alpha in small groups for their friends, family and neighbours. This strategy is helping create new and multiplying small groups, and making disciples who make disciples. Watch the Village Church story to see how Alpha in small groups is making an impact.
