Tips for running an Alpha study

Posted by David Leslie on September 19, 2004

Talk with a gentleman from the Grace Church in Delaware about their experances with Alpha. Here are some of the tips he gave me.

1. The church needs to understand and commit to the fact that Alpha is about bringing people into a relationship with Christ and not building church attenace.

2. If a church doesn’t have enough staff or resources, find another church who is interested in or already doing Alpha and see if you can’t team up.

3. Don’t skimp. They tried dropping the meal and the found that people really missed that time to both eat and get to know the others in the group better.
