Alpha Film Series Blog

The Alpha Film Series is great. It’s very visual, incredibly slick and speaks to the now generation. It also has a clear touch of God on it, which is so encouraging. All the guests love it.

In April 2016, the Alpha Film Series launched - an updated, relevant and engaging resource designed to take the audience on a journey exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Repackaged for today's audience, we wanted to find real-life stories of churches using it: where they're running it, who they're running it with and how guests are engaging with it. 

From Aberdeen to Brighton, from pubs to homes, from bankers in the city to people on the streets, the Alpha Film Series is already being used in all sorts of contexts across the UK.

Decoding Alpha // Alex's Story

Decoding Alpha // Alex's Story

Hear from Alex Wood in Portsmouth about his journey from trying Alpha, invited by a housemate to using it as a key tool in church planting.

We wanted to talk to Alex about what his top tips and tricks are, debunking the myths of what is takes to run a successful Alpha.

 

Who is Alex?

Alex became a Christian on Alpha at HTB in 2007. He’d been living and working in London for a few years after graduating from university and a friend invited him to Try Alpha. He went along expecting to disprove christianity but experienced quite the opposite.

After being selected to train for ordination in the church of England, Alex moved to Brighton where he worked at St Peter’s, and studied at St Mellitus College in London. After five years at St Peter's he and his wife, Liz, relocated to Portsmouth with their two daughters to start a brand new church plant named Harbour Church.

#RunAlpha

 

Based in the heart of the city, Harbour Church is located in an old department store on the High Street. They run a social enterprise coffee shop on the ground level whilst the church is spread over the three floors above.
