We are by the Church and for the Church.
What is Alpha?
We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore faith, ask questions and share their point of view.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. 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. It runs online, in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it! No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: hospitality, a talk and good conversation.
What does an Alpha Session look like?
Whether in person over a meal or virtually with a cup of tea, all sessions start with a time to connect, relax and build friendships. Eating food together creates space for people to connect and share life on a deeper level.
The Alpha talks are designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues of life and unpack the basics of Christian faith, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?” and “How does God guide us?”
The discussion time is an opportunity for people to respond to the talk, hear from others and contribute their own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Running Alpha at The Elevation Church has enabled us as a church to engage seekers and young believers in discussions that deepen their understanding of the basic tenets of our Christian faith – thereby helping them to gain stability, and in turn deepening our faith as a church family.
Alpha aims to help people to either discover or rediscover the meaning and joy of the Christian message. Alpha is an invaluable tool for evangelization.
In Aguata Prison during one of the Alpha graduations, 7 of the inmates testified that it was when they started ALPHA that they experienced freedom from smoking.
Alpha course apart from enlightening people in the way of salvation. It brings them to faith in Christ and nurture them in the same. Simply put, Alpha Course is a veritable vehicle for evangelism in this end time.
Alpha is a tool that gives room for interaction, there is no pressure or idea of coercing people into making a decision. Alpha helps you sit down, interact, and use your intellect and you come to a conclusion without being forced.
The simple but profound way of presenting the truths of God’s word stands Alpha out. Also, the concept of Alpha which is geared towards ensuring the unity of God’s church. Again, the promotion of fellowship among members of each small group.
Alpha has given us tremendous opportunity to have such an engaging church that is friendly and accommodating to the exploring youths.
