Alpha Course 2019

Asking those questions of life, faith and the future?
Want to consider what Christianity really is all about?
What is it they say about Jesus?


Our next course will start on Wednesday 29th of May running through to the 17th of July.

You’ll be welcome to join us at 7.15pm in either the Rectory or Parish Centre – to be confirmed. The first night will be a taster Fish & Chip Supper, with Pudding, followed by a 20 minute introductory film – join us for the Free meal and first film without obligation to come again if it’s not for you! We shall use the new Alpha Film Series to inspire our thinking and journey.

Our Spring Alpha Course  continues after Easter on Thursday evenings during May.   You’d still be welcome to join us on Thursdays for 7.15pm in the Parish Centre in a relaxed and friendly environment.  

So continue to join us on Wednesdays or to join the new course on Thursdays and we look forward to meeting you.

Give it a try!

That was what a member of our last Alpha course said.

Alpha Courses lasting about 11 weeks are offered during the course of the year. Very relaxed and friendly, ranging in number from 10 to 20 participants. The courses are ideal for those asking ‘what is Christian faith?’ or wanting to understand more fully the faith they’ve always had. You can come and try a course without any obligation to continue or need to say a word – simply come and enjoy.  Such courses as this may also be used as good preparation for adult Baptism or Confirmation.
