Alpha schedule by weeks:

Alpha is typically 9-11 weeks long with an Alpha weekend about halfway through. This is the recommended order of topics that we find is the most effective. You can find this schedule when you log in to myAlpha and click on the "Schedule" tab:

Top Tip: If you can't do a full weekend with 4 videos, you could show 3 videos in an Alpha Day and then add one more week to your Alpha to show the last weekend video.

Alpha session by hour:

Here are some sample schedules below that you can customize. An in-person Alpha is usually longer because it includes set up, a meal, and tear down. Guests are hosted for about 2 hours total. An online Alpha is typically shorter and lasts around 90 minutes. Please feel free to customize these samples according to your context:

After you register a course ("Create an Alpha") you will have access to the following materials all for free:

  • 2 training videos (Small Groups + Prayer and the Alpha Weekend)

  • NEW Promotional materials (guest invitations, posters, banners, etc)

  • All the Alpha videos to download and save to your computer

  • Team Guide with small group discussion questions for each week

  • Guest Guide with video outline for each week

  • Sample schedules and checklists to help you plan and prepare

    And more!
