Hear what renowned US Pastors are saying about Alpha:


"In the experience of many Christians and congregations of many denominations, Alpha has touched & changed personal as well as community lives for Christ. The fruits of Alpha attests to the sovereign grace and mercies of Almighty God as His means to bless the Church and the world in such a time & season of our generation."

– Rev. Dr. Ong Hwai Teik, Bishop of the Methodist Church in Malaysia


"Alpha is a non-threatening and therefore respectful way of leading treasure-hunters to find the real treasure in life. Anyone finding this treasure will not want to let go of it but will share it with others."

– Archbishop John Ha Tiong Hock, Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kuching


"Ever since I come to know Alpha, I always thank God for giving this effective tool to the churches in reaching out to the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This has proven true with what our churches here in Sabah, Malaysia have experienced growth through Alpha in these recent years. A lot of our new friends and families come to know Christ the Saviour through this blessed evangelism tool. This has also brought the churches to come together and be united in the proclamation of the Gospel."

– Rev. Dr. Thomas Tsen Lip Tet, Former Bishop of the Basel Christian Church of Malaysia (BCCM)


‘Alpha was the best thing I ever did. It helped answer some huge questions and to find a simple empowering faith in my life.’

– Bear Grylls, TV Adventurer


‘Alpha ... is probably the most interesting and incredible thing going on in our Christian world.’

– Tony Blair, Former UK Prime Minister


‘In my opinion Alpha accomplishes an incredible task, in making people interested in faith and in making faith relevant to the modern man. I especially appreciate the ecumenical spirit of the Alpha Course: There is no pressure on anybody to join a different denomination, but just to join Jesus and to put Jesus at the centre.’

– Father Raniero Cantalamessa, Preacher to the Papal Household


‘The Alpha Course has now become one of the most reliable and important means of drawing people into the church. It has enormous potential.’

– Alister McGrath, President of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, UK


‘To me, Alpha is an expression of the work of the Holy Spirit… It’s accessible, it’s easy, and it’s user-friendly. It’s extraordinary. It’s leading people into a personal relationship with Jesus and building a community that engages with the world and changes it for the better.’

– Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
