What’s On

Alpha 2018
We all have questions. Questions about ‘life, the universe and everything’. Some people have questions about faith – is there a God? A meaning to life? The Alpha course looks at questions people have about Christianity: Who was Jesus of Nazareth? Why do Christians worship him? Do Christians live differently? All good questions.

Alpha is all about exploring good questions in a relaxed atmosphere. It’s also a great way to meet new people, drink coffee and eat cake! If you would like to know more about Alpha 2018 please contact the church office.
(starting on 27th February for five weeks)
