Dr. George Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury, has spoken out once again in support of the Alpha course and its remarkable growth around the world. Observers are stunned by Alpha’s unprecedented international acceptance. In 1991, there were only 4 Alpha course involving 600 people. By 1995, 2,500 courses had begun involving over 100,000 people. In early 1997, over 4,500 courses have now sprung up all around the world, involved more than 250,000 people. By 1998, over 500,000 people have now taken part on every continent of the world.

In an interview with Focus newspaper, Carey said how interested he had been in watching the Alpha course develop. He commented, "I think it's superb and it appears to be adapted culturally as well - and all that's good. I commend it wholeheartedly and think it's a very good thing."
