Meet our team

 

ALPHA HQ

 

We work with people across the country to make Alpha accessible to anyone, anywhere, whether that’s in a local pub for a bunch of students, in a warehouse for the whole community or by creating a safe space in prisons.

We are a group of people who look to take the UK by storm by working in different areas of Alpha's mission, from engaging with churches and training leaders to event planning and design. We love to hear your Alpha stories, so let us know how you’re getting on by getting in touch with us.
