Dear [Church / Leader];
I hope you’re well. We’re well into the last half of 2017 and we’re in awe of what God has been doing. Seeing many Alpha courses run and many people come to faith is inspiring and encouraging. What a great privilege we have!
Alpha Invitation 17 / 18 & Resources
We’re delighted to let you know that we’ve created new Alpha videos, stories and resources. The story videos will start launching from the 14th of August. However, you can already use the other resources to promote your Alpha to your community and invite people to try Alpha.
The new invitation videos focus on the universal human need to explore. They follow six people from different countries and contexts from all around the world, all with their own story of exploration to share.
We’ve also created materials to help you encourage your congregation to invite people to try Alpha. Some of these include banners, posters, invitation cards, flyers and videos.
We’d love to make it as easy as possible for everyone in the church to invite their friends and family to explore the Christian faith on Alpha.

Making the Circle Bigger
We’re excited that we get to join the rest of the Alpha family worldwide in encouraging people to try Alpha. Imagine your entire community coming to faith!
While the stories launch on the 14th of August 2017 we have something else exciting planned. With the rest of Africa, we’ve planned a Thunderclap on social media. Many people will send the same message on the same day at the same time. The message encourages people to explore the Christian faith on Alpha.
Being a part of the Thunderclap simply means donating a Facebook status update to Tweet. You do this by following this link: http://bit.ly/AlphaThunder and click “Support” or “Support with Facebook” etc.
Please add your support to the Thunderclap and encourage your church to join in: http://bit.ly/AlphaThunder
Making the Circle Even Bigger
Encourage friends, family and the church to join in the Thunderclap by sharing some of these messages on your social media:
- Help us invite as many people as possible to #TryAlpha this September: http://bit.ly/AlphaThunder
