Are you Interested in exploring important questions about life and faith?  Or are you wondering what it might take to launch your own Alpha Course? Maybe you are looking to improve your course and connect with others currently running Alpha? We can help! Alpha New England exists to serve you. Our goal is for every person across New England, to have an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a no pressure, welcoming environment close to where they live or work. We are cmmitted to equip individuals and churches for effective outreach, primarily using the Alpha course, so that every person in New England, regardless of age, ethnicity, background or status, has an opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.


Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.

A typical Alpha
Alpha runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? CLICK HERE to watch a talk.

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
