Spring is a season of renewal, revival, and new life. The hope of Jesus is palpable and this spring we ask you to partner with us in sharing that hope.
We asked and God has been faithful. This spring, from April 19th to May 15th, 2022 all donations made to Alpha Canada will be DOUBLED (up to $50,000), allowing thousands more lives to be transformed through Jesus on Alpha.
Alpha is only possible because of the faithfulness and generosity of those who give to Alpha. We invite you to prayerfully consider a gift to Alpha this Spring and join us in inviting more people in Canada to discover a relationship with Jesus.Give to Alpha
Empowering students to share Jesus with their peers
Pastor Keith of Coastal Church in Vancouver is inspired by the next generation of Christians and their passion for sharing Jesus with others. In response to this passion, he ran Alpha for his students.
One of these students was Stephanie, who, despite growing up in a Christian home and knowing Jesus, experienced the Holy Spirit in a new way on Alpha and was transformed by His power and call on her life. After attending a youth conference at Coastal Church, Stephanie felt inspired to host an Alpha for her peers at her high school. To her surprise, 20 people signed up on the first day!
“I asked the Holy Spirit to give me the boldness and the courage to do this. I just remember praying. I was like, ‘Dear God, I pray that everything goes smoothly. Please give me peace with whatever happens.’ And more people signed up than I ever thought. So I was so surprised.”

Pastor Dave Koop of Coastal Church in Vancouver recognized the deep need for Christ and community in a city full of isolated and lonely people. Ralph was one of those lonely people, desperately seeking a community he didn’t know he needed. His life changed when he entered Coastal Church and experienced commitment and love through the invitational and hospitable culture. Joining Alpha, he felt purpose, connection, and belonging.
Empower Christians to share their faith in every corner of Canada and around the world.
Pastor James Fam of Coastal Church is passionate about empowering his church community to share their faith and become leaders. Laura, a political refugee from Colombia, is one of these people who, after many years of searching found peace and belonging.
While attending Coastal Church and participating in Alpha, Laura experienced the peace of God for the very first time. It was a peace that she felt called to share with others, and so she took a step of faith and decided to host an Alpha for her friends.
