This #GivingTuesday, join us in helping local churches around the world reach the next generation for Jesus.
Your £500 donation can give 150 people the opportunity to hear the gospel through the Alpha Youth Series in their language.
Our heart is to serve the church in its mission to help people to discover and develop a relationship with Jesus.
In 2018, we want to translate the new Alpha Youth Series into 14 different languages across Latin America and Asia Pacific, as well as contextualise and refilm the street interviews to better connect with a local African audience.
We believe that by putting this resource into the hands of more churches, in their language and in their unique context, we will see hundreds of thousands of young people explore faith and encounter the love of Jesus.
100% of money raised will go directly towards the translation project costs and filming local content.
What is the Alpha Youth Series?
In October 2017, we launched the brand new Alpha Youth Series – an updated, interactive series of 13 short episodes designed to help young people engage in life-changing conversations about faith.
So far we have already seen God use this tool in remarkable ways, and we would love for more of the next generation to have the same opportunity.
How much will it cost?
Total amount needed: £310,000
Dubbing and Subtitling
Translations planned for 2018 include some of the top 10 most spoken languages in the world:
1. Mandarin (Simplified)
2. Mandarin (Traditional)
5. Latin American Spanish
6. Brazilian Portuguese
7. Bahasa Indonesia
12. Tagalog (Philippines)
Cost: Roughly £19,200 per language
Localised Street Interviews
These interviews will be filmed locally in Africa to create contextualised content, with local faces and testimonies, that can be used alongside the Alpha Youth Series episodes.
“Even though Alpha isn't allowed in our schools, I still watched the first video of the new Alpha Youth Series and I cried with happiness... If I wasn't introduced to Christianity, I don't even know where I'd be in life without Christ.”
Grade 10 student, Canada
“We had an exciting Alpha… 43 teenagers attended and were quite engaging. The new videos are spot-on. Looking forward to an exciting and life-changing experience.”

What impact will it have?
In 2016, over 255,000 young people explored life, faith and God through Alpha Youth, with 50% of them located in Asia Pacific, Latin America and Africa. Doing these new translations/filming will enable us to put this resource into the hands of the churches in these countries for free:
