Dear Friend,

I know you’ll be as encouraged as I am to read this edition of Alpha News – and hear that momentum is growing for the Join the Adventure campaign!

This is truly a unique moment to reach our nation for Christ. And with the added profile Bear Grylls brings to this campaign, we’re expecting to see many more people inspired to share the Gospel in their communities.

It’s exciting to see increasing unity among churches, and a growing desire among believers to evangelise. We’re also seeing more Christian leaders – like Stu Harris – encouraging a culture of evangelism.

Stu plays an important role in equipping believers through Christian TV. On page 2 you can read his story about coming to know Jesus through Alpha.

You’ll also love Tad’s testimony on page 3 – a husband, father, friend and church member who is reaching out in new ways with Alpha. This has happened very naturally and is enriching people’s lives. I’m sure you’ll be inspired by how your support is working through him!

Please pray for more churches and individuals to participate in the Join the Adventure campaign and for thousands of Australians to come to Christ as a result.

Thank you for your generosity and prayers. Serving together – and relying on God – we can impact one million Australians with the Gospel by 2023. Ephesians 3:20 says…

“God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”

I’m grateful for you!

With love and appreciation,


Melinda Dwight
National Director, Alpha Australia
