Europe & Middle East
Alpha is run in over 35 countries across Europe and the Middle East, with the vision for people to encounter Jesus and have their lives transformed by Him. In 2017, over 7500 courses took place in over 5000 churches and organisations across the region, in all settings imaginable: Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, in prisons, in cafés, with refugees in camps, with Youth – to name but a few! The Alpha Film Series has been a key resource and the translation and roll-out of the Alpha Youth Series is currently underway. In March 2018 we had the opportunity to gather as offices from across the whole region at our European Leaders Gathering in Madrid. Following this, the region and countries have been working to implement strategy, with a specific focus on our digital platforms – in particular the new Alpha Builder, which will make it even easier for churches to access all they need to run Alpha.
Pray for the region as they work to equip and support churches to reach their communities with the gospel through Alpha.
Pray for Alpha to take root in fresh ways across key cities and urban areas.
Pray for continued strength for our partnership with Divine Renovation and that conferences planned across Europe over the next year would be fruitful.
Pray for the teams who are working on digital platforms, particularly for the roll out of the new Alpha builder.
Pray for funding for product translations across the region.
