Experiencing Alpha, is an exciting opportunity for church leaders across the region to experience Alpha for themselves and explore the various resources and tools offered.
The third run of Experiencing Alpha (EA17) saw over 324 pastors and leaders from 15 countries across the Asia Pacific immerse themselves in the week of events.
Held at the Alpha Asia Pacific Hub atop Lot10 Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur from 1 – 4 March 2017, the Alpha event this year placed a greater emphasis on worship. Each session was kicked off by a time of worship led by Worship Central Malaysia. And in addition, EA17 led seamlessly into the Worship Central Conference which took place in the same week.
EA17 continued to inspire the delegates with an impressive line-up of speakers, such as Todd Proctor - Church Networks Director for Alpha USA, Tim Hughes – Founder and Director of Worship Central and Vicar of St Luke’s Gas Street Birmingham, Miles Toulmin – Vicar of Holy Trinity Bukit Bintang Church and Executive Director of Alpha Asia Pacific, Wini Heron – National Director of Alpha Malaysia, Paul Kong & Aaron Anand – The Alpha Malaysia Youth & Campus Development team, Melissa Theng – Head of Global Alpha in the Workplace and Roseline Ching – Regional Development Manager for Alpha Asia Pacific sharing their experience and thoughts on how Alpha has developed in their areas and the vision of Alpha for the years to come.
This amazing week was brought to a celebratory end with the Global Alpha Campaign launch. The night kicked off with a welcome video by adventurer & survivalist, Bear Grylls and a special featurette of Episode 1 of the Alpha Film Series and concluded with an amazing time of worship led by Tim Hughes, Nikki Fletcher and the Worship Central Malaysia team.
This annual event continues to serve as a spark for new ways of presenting the gospel in a modern and relevant way. 30 million people around the world have done Alpha and we hope that this effective and easy to use tool continues to reach out to more people around the world.
