‘Alpha brings people closer and helps them to find that power which unites. The Alpha experience is not only a means through which one finds true life, but also a way to share the good news of the Living Christ.
Archbishop Alfred Martins
Archbishop of Lagos
'Alpha aims to help people to either discover or rediscover the meaning and joy of the Christian message. It gives one an opportunity to leverage on the experiences of others in a friendly warm and simple atmosphere. Alpha is an invaluable tool for evangelisation.'
Archbishop Buti Tlhagale
Archbishop of Johannesburg
‘Alpha has shown across the world, as well as here in South Africa, that it can be a most effective tool for evangelisation. It empowers lay people. I would certainly like to see Alpha becoming increasingly involved in our church communities.’
Cardinal Kurt Koch
President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity
‘Through Alpha, and the testimonies of those who participate in their sessions and groups, faith is renewed, rekindled, takes root.
Archbishop Octavio Ruiz
Secretary for the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelisation
‘Alpha, which I have had the opportunity to attend … is a providential tool because it precisely tries to reach out to those who are far from the Church, who are indifferent to the faith. By means of a very simple and humane tool based on fraternity and friendship, Christ is introduced to them and enters little by little into their hearts...'
Archbishop Rino Fisichella
President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelisation
‘Alpha is without doubt a great experience of new evangelisation.’
