Invite Scotland

You’re invited to join in with a global first!

Global Alpha Invitation

In September 2016 the first ever Global Alpha Invitation, fronted by the adventurer, author & TV presenter Bear Grylls, goes live. 

Around the world churches will be inviting their countries, cities and towns to explore faith on Alpha. An estimated 1 billion people will see the campaign over seven continents. In Scotland that means roughly a million people will be engaged by the campaign billboards, buses and social media.

Alpha Film Series

Following on from the global success of the Youth Film Series for teenagers, a brand new Alpha Film Series resource launches in April for a wider audience.

New hosts Toby Flint and TV presenter & actress Gemma Hunt join Nicky Gumbel for Alpha like you’ve never seen it before. The episodes will feature inspiring stories and interviews from all around the world, as well as visual illustrations and motion graphics.

With the Alpha Invitation and the new Alpha Film Series, there has never been a better time to join the adventure and run Alpha for your community.

Invite Scotland Launch 

April saw the launch of the Alpha Film Series in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. 900 leaders from 120 churches gathered to watch the first episode of the Alpha Film Series, hear from Toby about his experiences of filming, to pray and be inspired as to how the Alpha Film Series would work in their contexts. 

How can we play our part in Scotland?

If everyone in Scotland who currently runs Alpha inspired some younger leaders to plant a new Alpha using the Alpha Film Series, tens of thousands of people could try Alpha.

If everyone were to run an Alpha and ‘plant’ an Alpha, it would result, over the next 3 years, in 100,000 guests trying Alpha in churches, cafés, youth groups, prisons, pubs and homes across the nation.

To use the Alpha Film Series, register your Alpha on and download the episodes for free. 

To get involved with with the Global Alpha Invitation, check out our Invite page to find out when the assets are available. 



Let’s pray and, as the billboards and banners go up across the world, invite our friends, families and colleagues to explore faith on an all new Alpha this September. 

Together we can Invite Scotland.

“Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.”
