Low key. High impact. That’s what the Alpha course is providing people in churches and communities all over the world that are seeking answers about God or looking to get grounded in their new-found faith.

CCN is excited to present Alpha’s Nicky Gumbel in a live satellite broadcast on Friday, October 24. Nicky will help you understand the Principles and Practicalities of Alpha.

There are 5,000 Alpha courses being offered at churches of varying denominations across North America. Started in England, this course helps people explore the validity and relevance of the Christian faith, introducing the basics of Christianity and providing the opportunity for debate and discussion in a relational environment.

In this seminar, you will:
• Learn the six biblical principles of Alpha
• Discover the basic tools and techniques of Alpha
• Find resources to help you implement an Alpha course in your church

If you’re curious about the worldwide Alpha movement, be sure to be part of CCN’s live, interactive broadcast highlighting the Principles and Practicalities of Alpha.
