Alpha Prayer Live

“As a church we feel so much more ready to run Alpha again this term, and it helped us unite with other churches too.”


On Tuesday 13 September 2016, the UK held a night of live stream prayer hosted by Pete Greig (24-7 Prayer) and Georgi Sheaf (Alpha International). The vision was to see hundreds of churches across the UK collectively pray for their local communities and on the night, thousands tuned in from across the world.

Ways to get involved

1. Watch the stream

2. Host your own evening 

What to pray for in the run up to your Alpha:


  • Pray for the impact of your invitation
  • Pray that people are encouraged to invite others on Alpha
  • Pray for potential guests as they are invited through the campaign or by individuals


  • Pray for the catering process – that the right numbers are catered for and guests enjoy what's offered
  • Pray that the technology works on the evening, from the microphones to the videos
  • Pray that the right number of team members in relation to the guests attending


  • Pray that guests are welcomed and feel settled
  • Pray for connection and that good relationships are built within the small groups
  • Pray for the hosts and helpers, that they enjoy facilitating the group
