Starting in September 2023, we ran our second Alpha course.  What is Alpha?  It is an opportunity to think about life, faith and meaning by exploring the basics of the Christian faith.  Each of the sessions includes a short film, discussions and questions, and lunch.  It is good to eat together as we explore and wonder about the meaning of life.  Alpha was developed by Holy Trinity Church Brompton in London, and is run by churches across the country and across the globe.

If you are wondering about God or have big questions as a result of the coronavirus crisis or just want to know more about the Christian faith, do get in touch with us as we will be running more courses in the future.  Sessions are relaxed, informative and fun.  No question is too simple or too challenging.  Come and see.  Come and listen.  Come and join in.

A Prayer for our Alpha Courses

Lord, we pray for your Church as we extend an invitation,
your invitation, to those who might try Alpha.
We pray for the fired up and excited ones,
for the nervous or embarrassed ones,
for those who aren't sure who to invite.
Open our ears to hear the names you whisper.
Calm our fears and give us the courage to ask.
Strengthen us with the power of your Spirit,
as we take a risk and extend an invitation.  Amen.
