A FREE ONE-DAY CONFERENCE TO HELP YOU TAKE ALPHA TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Vintage Alpha-Con is a free conference to help pastors, leaders and ministry teams explore or take their Alpha to the next level. We are inundated with great questions from churches across the country that face the joys and challenges of running Alpha and growing it in their context. So we thought we should gather some of the best Alpha experts, pastors and practitioners and offer free coaching and dialogue around the practices, solutions and innovations that help Alpha thrive. Importantly, this is a 'come and see' event as we end the day experiencing Alpha at Vintage Church. There is nothing quite like seeing and experiencing a thriving Alpha for yourself.
The conference is free and for one day, but if you want to come back the next morning on Wednesday Oct 3 we have an optional time available for you to have more concrete discussions with the Alpha experts about how to grow Alpha in your particular context.
Join us - we would love to see you!
