Chinese Alpha Film Series
The Chinese Alpha Film Series is Alpha’s first fully contextualized version of the Alpha Film Series. Filmed entirely in Mandarin, the series allows a Mandarin speaking audience to explore life, faith, and meaning through their heart language and through content that is culturally relevant to them. The series is filmed in seven locations around the world. Rev. Andrew Chai is joined by two young hosts and other renowned leaders to unpack the basics of the Christian faith in an updated and engaging way.
15 Episodes – 11 Weeks
Modelled after the Alpha Film Series, the CAFS presents the same opportunity for Mandarin speaking guests to explore the basics of the Christian faith through an Eastern and culturally relevant worldview. With local testimonies and sharing by local experts, the CAFS presents the Gospel as a truth that transcends cultural barriers and is applicable in the lives and contexts of the guests.
The Church in Asia is growing.
Each year about 200,000 people attend an Alpha in Asia and have the opportunity to hear the gospel and encounter Jesus for themselves.
Numbering at close to 1.5 billion people out of the entire global population, the Chinese are the largest ethnic people group in the world with Mandarin being the second most spoken language globally.
In Canada alone, we have 1.9 million Chinese people. The potential is enormous, and with a tool like the CAFS, so many more Chinese people can be reached with the Gospel. To be able to connect with the gospel in one’s heart language and hear stories and testimonies from people who look like us with similar life experiences is life changing. This is why we have created the Chinese Alpha Film Series.
