Imagine if your favourite hockey team said, "...but we did training LAST year...!"  😊

Each time you run Alpha, do team training! It's a time for team "building" not only training. Yes, getting together with your team is essential each and every time you run Alpha and is absolutely vital to a successful Alpha.

Ask previous small group leaders to share their best advice for newbies. Think about creative ways to make the meeting fun and interesting! Use an icebreaker question to get people talking. End with prayer (prayer topics here).

Top Tip 💡 Ideally, your training session will model an Alpha session--with a meal or snack, training video, then discussion (and don't forget prayer!).
