What’s next after Alpha?

Thursday 22nd September - 1 PM Central


Priests and parish leaders want their Alpha participants to become and grow as disciples. The problem is that, building the next step of discipleship in your parish can be complex: do we have sufficient leaders? what model works best? when do we start? This is why Divine Renovation is inviting you to What’s next after Alpha?, an event where you will learn how to walk with people beyond Alpha, hear about the models that others have developed in their parishes, and be inspired with new ideas to keep moving your parish’s mission forward.
