We are excited that you expressed interested in joining the Alpha Easter Invitation2016. You will join the hundreds of other churches around the nation running Alpha in Term 2 next year reaching their communities. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith where guests can freely share their ideas in a non-judgemental environment.
One of the key aspects to Alpha is to plan well and the first place to start is to set your dates for Alpha in Term 2 next year. This will help you and help us as once you have set your dates, register your Alpha here so that your Alpha will be included in Alpha Finder, the web feature where guests can find your Alpha based on their postcode. So it is essential that you register your Alpha to be part of the Easter Invitation 2016.
As Easter is early next year, being Friday 25th March – Tuesday 28th March, you will also need to consider school holidays in your state as you decide your start date for Alpha. Our recommendation is to start Alpha the week that you will have most people available to attend as guests and of course, all your helpers on your Alpha team.
Here are the school holidays and public holidays for each State and Territory for 2016 around Easter:
Remember to register your Alpha here once you have set your dates for Term 2 next year.
Your Alpha will then appear on our
"Alpha Finder" map so potential
guests can find it using their postcode.
We are here to help!
