Updated over a week ago

Alpha leaders can decide how they would like potential Alpha guests to sign up. Some options are: on their church website, using a Google Form, through a Facebook event, from the TryAlpha page, with a Zoom registration link (more info here).

After a guest signs up, it's important that the Alpha leader welcomes the guest right away to confirm their sign up and share relevant info. Here is a sample that you can customize and send out:
