We believe in telling young people that they can change their world, and giving them the tools to do so.
In 2021, we witnessed record growth in Alpha Youth participants and Alphas! Alpha Youth has continued to equip and empower young people and youth leaders, with hundreds of leaders from across various Christian traditions gathering together in person and online, united in prayer and mission.
We have continued to strengthen relationships with organisations such as Youth Alive, Scripture Union, Red Frogs, Alphacrucis and more. The Alpha Youth team have contributed to national youth ministry curriculum via Alphacrucis College, as well as being featured at Youth Alive Academy nationally, training students to run Alpha Youth.
As part of our strategy to equip young people with the tools to share their faith with their friends, we have worked to produce relevant content for this purpose. The Alpha Youth Series has been updated with Australia Street Talks, filmed with young people around the nation. Life Essentials is a series of short videos that spark conversation around life and faith, designed for students to use with their friends, and short enough to fit into a lunchtime program.
In 2021 we also launched a national 6-week digital marketing campaign, where we engaged with over 700 young people .
Building connection across traditions
Our team hosted 15 regional network gatherings, connecting leaders across traditions and denominations for prayer and encouragement, unified in our shared mission of evangelisation.

Resources for Youth Leaders
We make it easy to invite young people to Alpha Youth by providing new promotional resources; posters, graphics, videos, invitations, etc.

"Our Junior High students have all been raving about how impactful the Alpha Youth Series has been for them, and we're only four weeks in! I am blown away by how powerful our conversations have been."
St. John Vianney’s Parish
“Connect Church Youth have really engaged with the Alpha content. We have 17 young people attending and growing each week, and as a new youth group we are feeling very thankful for this resource.”
"Some of our AYS highlights include seeing one of the girls with virtually no faith background bring 7 new people along. We have also seen a transformation in our year 10 boys who over the weeks became more engaged in the content."
