What is the "fruit" of your church's Alpha Course?


We're running the Alpha Course at our church now as I have in my past two churches where I've served. I'm curious about the spiritual fruit that has been harvested as a result of your experience with this program.

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

Alpha was the way that God lead my husband to Christ, and solidified my love for Christ. I attended in 2003 and have been an active member ever since. My husband attended in 2004 and also has been actively involved in the church. We teach/co-ordinate Sunday school, I lead GEMS and am an elder. We have continued to attend a Thursday night bible study that began with Alpha 5 years ago. Several other Alpha attendees from the same year are also deacon, GEMS leaders, and active participants in the Church. Alpha is a great tool to connect with community members - connection being the most important part. It was the connections we made with church members and our pastor that made us choose to become members of this particular church.

Thank you, Grace, for sharing your testimony about how Alpha impacted you and transformed your husband. I'm excited about how Alpha is already impacting our present group. One participant is an agnostic who asks many good questions and seems to be warming up to Jesus and the gospel. A Hindu refugee couple is also a part of our group and they are enjoying learning more about Christianity. Another couple comes from a nominal Christian background and is drawing closer to the Lord through their involvement.

I was led by the course also. I took it two years ago and flondered around a it but now Ihave joined my church and playon the praise team as well as serve on the pre school board and our Vision Team. A great program that I have asked to teach if our church revives it.

Thanks for sharing your testimony, Wilbur. As you can see with my other posted comment, our present group is being impacted by Alpha too.

I can attest to the fruit of the Alpha program. I had prayed for my brother for years to find the Lord. He attended the Alpha course and has accepted Jesus as his Saviour. He hungers to learn more. Praise be to God.
