50% of Alpha converts don’t make it to church!
Alpha was described as possibly the last hurrah of the tail end of Christendom.
Holy Trinity Brompton, home of Alpha, reports that 50% of their Alpha graduates do not make it into church after making a personal response. This is very troubling! One response from new believers is “I thought Alpha is church and now you expect to come and sit in this thing and put up with all this? We shared real meals and now you are offering me a wafer? We interacted and now you expect me to sit in a row and just listen?”
