What is ACTS?
Following the success of our first locally produced Cantonese Alpha video series for young adults in 2015, Alpha HK is now producing a new Alpha Cantonese Teen Series (ACTS) tailor-made for Chinese-speaking teens in school.
We believe this innovative & dynamic product will be a powerful and effective tool to empower pastors, teachers and student leaders to bring the Gospel to Chinese-speaking youth globally, and will effectively respond to the current & urgent needs of the youth, church and society based on feedback from our extensive & diverse network of strategic partners.
New local production – Working closely with a local production team with extensive experience, the whole production process, from conceptualization, content writing, filming to final production, has been well designed in order to resonate with the younger generation.
Tailored for Teens – We have recruited new and younger hosts! Through an innovative & dynamic interpretation of our tried and true Alpha content, we hope to continue to walk faithfully with our younger generation on their journey to explore life, faith, and purpose.
More relevant stories & testimonies – Through each of the genuine and moving stories and testimonies, our hope is to connect with the younger generations and to help them to develop positive values and attitudes towards their precious lives.
Catholic-friendly track – Production of new Catholic friendly track will enable Catholic schools & churches to use Alpha more effectively to help their youth to get more connected with Jesus and to know more about Him.
Why is ACTS strategic & significant?
Meeting current & urgent needs in the city – Our younger generations desire to walk in authentic relationship of true companion and seek a community to belong to and grow with. Alpha provides a platform and opportunity to invite our churches and different youth ministries to walk with our younger generation and explore life with them.
Unique & tailor-made product for schools & campuses – The content and feel is specifically designed for the younger generation. Through a few simple training sessions, it’s even easier to launch Alpha in a youth group or context.
Reaching wider community locally & globally –
Locally – We leverage our strong partnership networks to mobilize churches, schools and the marketplace to reach even more youth with the Gospel through Alpha.
Globally – We reach Chinese speaking youth around the world through our FREE online resources
High recognition and credibility – Product vetted by respected leaders (including church leaders & seminary professors) and endorsed by youth KOLs (key opinion leaders), such as:
Dr. Y.S. Sin, Matthew (President, Christian Ministry Institute)
Rev. Joseph Ha Chi-shing (Auxiliary Bishop, Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong)
Dr. Lawrence Ko Ming-him (Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies, Alliance Bible Seminary)

We hope to see…
From 2020 to 2022, we expect to launch 1,370 Youth & Student Alpha courses that will reach approx 30,200 teenagers.
The total project budget is HK$ 4,000,000, which cover the costs for production and on-going development.
