Pippa Gumbel on Love Always talking about marriage

Pippa Gumbel

Pioneer of the Alpha Course

Pippa Gumbel, the wife of former vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) in London, spearheaded the creation of Alpha. Alpha serves as an introductory course to the Christian faith and is endorsed by numerous major Christian denominations across 169 countries.

In 1990, Gumbel assumed leadership of the Alpha Course, which had been ongoing since 1977. Pippa supported her husband and the course underwent a transformation, shifting its focus from catering primarily to new Christians to targeting individuals outside the church who may not identify as Christians themselves.
