Alpha Australia exists to champion evangelism and serve the local church. One of the ways we seek to do this is by making our team available to preach and speak at churches, conferences, Bible colleges, training and other events. Our team are available throughout the year to speak across Australia and have a range of focus areas that they can speak about including evangelism, leadership, social justice, prison ministry, engaging young people, marriage and parenting, local church ministry, creative ministry and worship.
