Alpha Film Series

Alpha around the globe

Begin the greatest adventure.

The Alpha Film Series is a new resource designed to take the audience on a journey to explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Repackaged for today’s audience, the Alpha Film Series is emotive, engaging and epic in scale and scope. The episodes feature inspiring stories, interviews from all around the world, visual illustrations and motion graphics.

With sixteen language translations and eleven more translations currently in production, it’s a tool for anyone interested in running Alpha and is free to download on Alpha Builder. It covers all of the traditional Alpha content and is made up of fifteen episodes (each under thirty minutes), an introduction to the Alpha day or weekend as well as specific training videos.


Presenters Nicky Gumbel, the pioneer of Alpha, Gemma Hunt, a BAFTA award-winning TV presenter and Toby Flint, a curate at Holy Trinity Brompton church in London bring the traditional Alpha material to life in the new, global, interactive series.
