Alpha Film Series Blog

The Alpha Film Series is great. It’s very visual, incredibly slick and speaks to the now generation. It also has a clear touch of God on it, which is so encouraging. All the guests love it.

In April 2016, the Alpha Film Series launched - an updated, relevant and engaging resource designed to take the audience on a journey exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Repackaged for today's audience, we wanted to find real-life stories of churches using it: where they're running it, who they're running it with and how guests are engaging with it. 

From Aberdeen to Brighton, from pubs to homes, from bankers in the city to people on the streets, the Alpha Film Series is already being used in all sorts of contexts across the UK.

Beth’s Story – The simple invitation

On assignment to create a new Global Alpha Invitation, the team read through stories of people who have been impacted by Alpha across the UK, coming across Beth in Swansea. The alarm sounding at 4 am was chipping but brought us to the sun rising over Caswell Bay.

Jonny and Stacy’s Story – You can sit with us
