Many are familiar with the Alpha Course, an Intro to Christianity Course developed by Anglican church in London, and its success over the past decades. That success has faded some in recent years, at least in part, due to the the fact that more and more people are so unchurched that even the Alpha Course is too churchy for them. So we need something pre-Alpha.
Some churches are using the Alpha Marriage and Parenting courses as precursors to inviting someone to Alpha. But today I discovered the Uglyduckling. It appears to be a ministry support for those wishing to do evangelism. It attempts to get the conversation started with those who are extremely unchurched.
