Alpha is run across the UK in all four nations; in schools, universities, prisons, parishes, on the beach, in your local pub, your local church and more. In 2017, almost 20,000 courses were run in the UK, hosting over 350,000 guests!

The Alpha UK team is made up of regionally based staff, those who look after contexts and operational staff; all of whom aim to supply the UK with the latest tools, training and support in order to run an Alpha of quality that meets the needs of the local community.

As the Alpha UK team develops, we would appreciate your prayers to support the workings of both those behind the scenes at Alpha HQ and of Church leaders around the UK who run Alpha and allow guests an opportunity to explore; life, faith and meaning.


Prayer points

  • Pray for the preparations as we approach Focus; a time for meeting with church leaders and previous guests and sharing their stories to encourage others to invite a friend to Alpha, try it themselves or run an Alpha course.
  • Pray for Alpha Prisons Training around the UK, equipping churches and their Alpha teams to run Alpha in their local Prison, in addition to the upcoming Prison Ministry Conference.
  • Pray for The Marriage Courses which is a rapidly growing course under Alpha.
  • Pray for the work of partner Divine Renovation which is developing Parish life in the UK from maintenance to mission.
  • Pray for the newly formed UK team. Pray for their unity and protection as they take on new roles and build upon the relationships with many churches in the UK.
