Alpha course revamped for the digital age

by Hannah Tooley

A series of talks have been filmed in a documentary style via a series of short films which are being offered to churches as an alternative to the traditional Alpha talks.

The Alpha film series was funded by donations from all over the globe are presented by Church of England clergyman Toby Flint and CBBC TV presenter Gemma Hunt.

The 16 films included questions about who is Jesus, how can people have faith and what prayer means.

Stories and interviews from all around the world are show cased, including stories from Cananda, Hong Kong and Chile.

Contributors include big names like Bear Grylls, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and Henriquez Gonzalez, one of the thirty-three miners trapped for sixty-nine days at the San Jose mine in Chile.

Alpha says more than 29 million people have looked to their courses in almost 170 countries.

The films will be available in Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin and Hindi by the end of 2016.

Tricia Neill, president of Alpha International said: "The new Alpha Film Series has the potential to reach millions worldwide with the message of God's transforming love and grace."
