Alpha Mid Atlantic exists to help you run the Alpha course effectively and to give everyone in the Mid Atlantic region the opportunity to attend an Alpha course near their home or workplace.
We work with a growing network of churches and ministries throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware and Southern New Jersey to train and equip teams to run Alpha. As a result, more people are encountering Christ, and churches are being transformed as their people are activated to share their faith in Jesus through Alpha.
We desire to see the Kingdom of God made known in our post-Christian society. Alpha was birthed into a similar cultural landscape in London where people were hungry for a safe space that allowed them to ask questions, express doubts, and explore faith. Alpha provides that safe place to explore faith and ask questions. As a result, we are seeing the growth of Alpha courses in many different contexts in this region.
You can find Alpha courses running in churches, youth groups, coffee shops, colleges, bars and restaurants, food pantries, pregnancy crisis centers, prisons, homes and in the workplace.
Whether you’re looking for an Alpha course to attend or you’d like to run Alpha at your church or for a group of friends, we’re here to help.
Host, Helper and Hospitality Training
Alpha is a place where people can come together, ask any question, talk through issues, share their opinions, and make new friends. All of this happens best in an environment of hospitality from the time the guest enters the room all the way through the small group experience. So how do you set the stage for a great Alpha? Bring your volunteers and leaders and let us help you train them in this interactive morning.

Regional Alpha Day Away Event
What is the Alpha Day Away?
The Alpha Day Away is a crucial part of The Alpha Course. This is the time that is devoted to teaching on the person and work of the Holy Spirit in the individual lives of those on the course, as well as offering an extended time of prayer ministry.
Every year, Alpha Mid Atlantic organizes a Regional Day Away. There are a number of key benefits to joining with other churches:
Reduces the administrative burden on your church, allowing you to focus on your guests.
Larger group creates more excitement as guests realize they are part of something bigger. Each church stays together in their small groups but all meet together for general sessions.
Live and Video Presentations, outstanding worship, all lead by experienced Alpha leaders.
Who is the Holy Spirit?
What Does the Holy Spirit Do?
How Can I be Filled with the Holy Spirit? (followed by a time of prayer ministry)
How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?

“Alpha has given us a consistently simple and fun way to welcome people on the margins into our lives as a church family. It has taught us how to listen attentively, empathize with people’s life journey and consider their sincere questions with love and respect. Whether in prisons, coffee shops, community outreach centers or a person’s living room, Alpha keeps the conversation relevant and accessible to all. We love running Alpha at West Shore because we get to be with people as they come to know Jesus. The evidence of new life is undeniable!”
