Alpha for the Workplace

What is it?

Alpha in the Workplace is a practical introduction to the Christian faith for the workplace environment and is open to anyone. It runs as a series of weekly meetings, with a friendly meal, a talk and small group discussion.


There are fifteen talks during the Alpha in the Workplace course, covering the basic principles of the Christian Faith. The talks are given over a ten-week period, including a weekend or day away.


The weekly sessions can be done during one-hour lunch breaks, or in the evening after work when people are more relaxed. In lunch sessions, each talk is around 20 minutes, and guests have their food while watching the DVD. In an evening session, each talk is about 40 minutes and are typically done after a tea or drinks.


Alpha in the Workplace can work for groups of any size, and empowers Christian professional and workers for effective evangelism. Alpha spans denominations and presents the core truths of the Christian faith in a manner that every denomination can get behind.

Why run Alpha in the Workplace?

The workplace IS our mission field.  Everyone is looking for answers to life's biggest questions and that includes the person next to you in the office.  Colleagues; who are seeking for meaning and purpose in life, those who may have great achievements and material wealth but are spiritually poor and desperate for acceptance, love and wanting more to life than the rat race.  


Alpha in the workplace provides you with an opportunity to be a more effective witness for Christ in your workplace, reaching your colleagues with the good news of hope at their time.  Over lunch, we watch a talk for 30 minutes followed by small group discussions for the remaining 30 minutes.  It's simple and powerful.


"I think it is a great tool for engaging people in the workplace. At the same time, it equips the believers themselves in the workplace and we believe that if you repeat the cycle, you do this often enough, in time you have the tool to get into the city, into the society and culture enough to transform it and I believe it's replicable right across the nation."
- Ps Dr Philip Lyn, Senior Pastor of Skyline SIB


Over 200 companies and organisations are now running Alpha in workplaces all over Malaysia. Many found faith and many others rededicated their lives to Christ and found meaning in their work again.


Wherever You Work, Alpha Can Work.
