Alpha is a 10 week program that creates an opportunity for parishes in the Archdiocese of Brisbane to make and form disciples who go out into their neighbourhoods and wider community. Alpha can also be used as a fantastic complementary resource for the enquiry period of the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) journey.


Our Adult Formation team is offering an Archdiocesan Alpha Journey where, in collaboration with Alpha Australia, we will walk with parish teams as you look to train new leaders and start an Alpha season in your own parish. We believe that there will be much to celebrate along the journey so we will end the journey with an all in Celebration Event.

Here are the main destination points along the way: 

Come & See Event

7pm  |  Wed 31st July  |  Hanly Room    

This in an experiential event for people in parishes who want to see what a typical Alpha session looks and feels like. We are inviting parishes to come together with a group of leaders as you consider introducing or reigniting Alpha in your parish. Please use the link below to secure your spot. Tickets are limited and we recommend sending a minimum of two parishioners per parish and encourage up to 6 team members to attend.

Tickets are now open for this event. Click here to purchase your tickets.

Team Training & Support

7pm  |  Wed 4th September |  Hanly Room 

Those parishes who decide to join the Archdiocesan Alpha Journey for 2024 will receive training and ongoing support for the duration of their Alpha Journey. At this initial Training and Support evening, we will help equip your leaders to confidently and successfully begin the Alpha Journey in your parish.

Alpha Journey in the Parish

We will walk with you, in real time, as your team runs your parish Alpha starting the week of the 30th of September (Term 4 of the School Term) and ending first week of December.

This will be a 10-week journey including a day for a combined Retreat Day at Holy Spirit Seminary for all parishes on that are on the Alpha Journey.

Celebration Event

We believe in the importance of celebrating well, and as a result we will come together after experiencing the Alpha Journey together, to celebrate all God has done and all we have achieved. It will be a time to celebrate the fruits of the Archdiocesan Alpha Journey and to learn from the bumps we experienced on the road. This event will also be a time to dream about mission in our context and cast our eyes forward to the Christmas Season.

Useful resources

Through the Alpha Journey, all the resources you need to run a successful Alpha experience will be provided for you.

We can’t wait to have you onboard for this incredible journey as we focus on learning together, laughing together and going out on mission together.
