Alpha is a tool for evangelisation that is being used by thousands of the Christian faith, Catholic parishes in over 70 countries around the world. Alpha is also run by churches of many other denominations to introduce people to the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. This has led to more than 23 million people around the world experiencing Alpha. In particular, it is attracting many young people who are asking the question: “Is there more to life than this?”
Over 23 million people have experienced Alpha. 66,000 courses are running in 112 languages in 169 countries worldwide.
“We cannot forget that evangelisation is first and foremost about preaching the Gospel to those who do not know Jesus Christ. Many of those are quietly seeking God, led by a yearning to see his face, even in countries of ancient Christian tradition. All of them have a right to receive the Gospel, Christians have the duty to proclaim the Gospel without excluding anyone.”
The Joy of the Gospel
When we go to proclaim Christ, it is he himself who goes before us and guides us. When he sent his disciples on mission, [Matthew 28:20]. And this is also true for us! Jesus does not leave you alone” He always accompanies you.”
