Alpha Comes to Madagascar
July 3, 2005

[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] Mission and evangelisation in Madagascar takes a new stride with the implementation of the Alpha Course.

Alpha founder Nicky Gumbel invited the Right Revd. Roger F.H. Chung Po Chuen,
Bishop of Antsiranana, to attend the International Alpha Week at Holy Trinity, Brompton in London, recently.

The meeting was held to facilitate the world networking of the new evangelisation tool.

Bishop Chung reports: "All the 25 parishes in the Diocese of Antsiranana have received a leaders' and a guest course manual.

"So Madagascar is now geared for Alpha. We hope to touch all the Dioceses in Madagascar in the coming time."
