Alpha is usually run once a week for about 9 to 12 weeks with a Weekend Together partway through the course. The different types of series are listed below with the average number of weeks to run it, but this depends on how many videos you show on the Alpha Weekend.
eg. We recommend that you show 4 videos on your Alpha weekend, so if you only show 3 videos, you'll need to add an extra week to your Alpha course to show the 4th one. Here is the average number of weeks for each series:
Using the Alpha Film Series - 11 weeks
Using Alpha Youth Series - 9 weeks
Using Alpha with Nicky Gumbel Series - 11 weeks
