Presenters Mrs. Mary Scotland and Sr. Ann Ita Walsh SSpS

The Alpha Programme is an evangelization tool which can be used anywhere and at any time. The programme is biblically based, and its teachings and sharing are presented in a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere where members are free to share their views. Alpha is open to non-church goes as well as church-goes, and is non-denominational both in its membership and focus.
