Future Alpha Course

Hosted by Steve

Do you know anyone that is thinking about what faith means or is new to faith themselves? The Alpha course is for them!  We are currently in the middle of a course but would like to hear from anyone new so we can start planning the next.

Alpha is a series of 12 interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. After a shared meal there is a short talk and then an opportunity to freely ask questions and explore the topic further. No pressure. No follow up. No charge!

If you are interested, or want to find out more contact Steve Down for more information about times and venue.

Why join a Small Group?
We think Small Groups are a really great way of connecting with lots of different people in both our church and local community. By being part of a small group you can:

  • Meet new people
  • Feel part of a great community
  • Learn from the Bible
  • Develop a deeper knowledge of God’s love for you
  • Enjoy a range of groups, including interest groups


  • What if I don’t know what group to join? Feel free to chat to leaders to find out more about them and their small group. Alternatively, speak to one of the Small Group Development Team (Bob Furnell, Chris Furnell, Gareth Godfrey or Yvonne Tobin), who’d be really pleased to help you.
  • Will I get my choice? We will make every effort to accommodate everyone. We’ll let you know if your choice of group(s) is full and help place you elsewhere.
  • How long have I got to book? Groups begin the week beginning the 29th April 2024. We encourage you to book early, as some groups may be popular and we don’t want you to miss out, and to give leaders time to confirm details such as venue, start date and time.
