ALPHA YOUTH SERIES
9-10 weeks / 13 sessions
Re-imagined, re-written and re-designed
The brand new Alpha Youth Series has been reimagined for today's youth culture. Since the launch of the Alpha Youth Film Series in 2013, it has been used to run Alpha for 13-18 year olds in 49 countries, in 19 languages — giving young people all around the world the chance to explore faith through Alpha. Filmed in Vancouver, London, Paris, Rome, Israel and many other incredible locations.
After getting feedback from youth leaders around the world, we put in countless hours into creating stronger, refined content. These changes will help communicate ideas and content more effectively.
The new series was filmed all around the world, in Vancouver, London, Rome, Paris, Israel, and many other incredible locations. It features interviews, testimonies and insight from people all around the world.
With an increase in production quality, scope, and budget, the new series has a brand new look. More dynamic visuals and motion graphics bring the series to life, so that students will be proud to invite their friends.
How does Alpha work?
Alpha Youth is typically run over 9 weeks with a weekend/day away. In each session you eat food, watch a talk, and discuss questions in small groups.
Food has a way of bringing people together and building community. So even if it’s a light snack, sweets or a full meal, Alpha always starts with food.
The talks tackle core questions about life and faith from a Christian perspective. There are 9 weekly episodes and 4 episodes for the Alpha Weekend/Day. Each episode averages 23 minutes in length.
Throughout each episode, there are three discussion breaks. These breaks give everyone a chance to share thoughts and ideas in small groups without fear of being corrected or judged.
Along the way there are opportunities to experience worship through music and moments for prayer.
All of this is done in a fun environment where anyone is welcome.
