This Christmas season, from November 23rd – December 31st, all donations to Alpha Canada will be doubled so that thousands more lives are transformed by the gospel of Jesus.

Give a Christmas Gift to Alpha

God has been working across our nation.
Watch Shawn’s story below to see how.

Shawn is a business owner and philanthropist in White Rock, BC.

As Alphas transitioned online during the pandemic, Shawn’s heart for seeing people encounter Jesus was not discouraged. 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 shared, “I didn’t have a clue what I was doing and it was the easiest thing in the world because I was facilitating discovery.” Shawn invited 20 friends, 8 who joined him online, and in the end 4 became Christians!

Shawn already knew about Alpha as he had attended one at his local church many years ago and when his business started to flourish, he chose to partner with Alpha knowing that tens of thousands of people will go through a discovery process and ask ‘why do I believe what I believe?’, ‘how does Jesus fit into this?’ and ‘Is this something that can change my life?’ just like his formerly atheistic friend. 

“I like how this program is very comfortably allowing people to ask questions and discover for themselves why they believe what they believe.”

Shawn, Alpha Online Leader

These are exciting days and we believe there is an opportunity like never before to share the hope of the gospel in every corner of our nation.

Because of generous friends like Shawn, together with other Alpha Partners, 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!

Please consider giving this Christmas as we continue to serve and equip the church to reach more people with a message of hope through Alpha.

Why give a monthly donation?

When you give monthly to Alpha, you become part of the incredible story of God building his church in Canada. Our work helps thousands of churches across the country run Alpha every year. A monthly gift enables us to equip them to give someone the opportunity to do Alpha in their local community and hear the gospel of Jesus for free. Through November 23rd-December 31st, 2021 your first monthly donation will be matched!

What will my Christmas match gift go towards?

Your generosity will help us provide the best resources for churches to share the gospel effectively, creating life-changing experiences for guests and transforming church communities across Canada.

Help thousands of people explore a relationship with Jesus through Alpha in person or online.

Mary, an Alpha host from Montreal, shared the hope of Jesus with guests through an online Alpha. She saw firsthand how God has been working during the pandemic and how Alpha helped build a community for people to explore the Christian faith.

Equip the church in Canada to reach their communities with the gospel during a global pandemic.

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.

Empower Christians to share their faith in every corner of Canada and around the world.

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.

Give to Alpha and help see the church in Canada reach millions of people and introduce them to a personal relationship with Jesus.
