KUALA LUMPUR: The film series of the globally popular Alpha course, which explores the Christian Faith, was launched at Holy Trinity Bukit Bintang on Thursday.
Alpha’s pioneer Nicky Gumbel, a vicar from London, was on hand for the launch of the first of 16 new 30-minute documentary style films.
These will be offered to churches as an alternative to the traditional Alpha talks.
Contributors of the film include adventurer Bear Grylls.
“We have chosen to launch it here. This is a new way of presenting Alpha,” said Gumbel.
The Alpha Film series is also being launched on Thursday in South Africa, United Kingdom and Canada.
