9am in the Church

On the 1st Sunday there is a vibrant new style of meeting with God. 10:30am – It is laid back, engaging and dynamic. This style enables God to meet you, and you to meet God, at your point of need or comfort. Through art, song, writing, chat or reflection. Church has never been this accessible. The gathering is followed by a finger food meal together. Warm, welcoming and inclusive.

Tuesday – Chat and Find – 10:30 am

– Come for a coffee or tea, home baking, friendly chat, meaningful discussion or take some quiet time in the church…

Messy Church

The next Messy Church is 17th December 5 – 7pm – What do I do with this gift?

Messy Church is a Christ-centered gathering for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

The Alpha Course is a safe place to ask those questions we all have.

It is discussion based and no question is too big or small, crazy or deep. Everyone can ask any question they like.

Watching a short video presentation each session to “set the scene” then leads into your small group discussion. Groups are no bigger than 10, so everyone is heard and listened to.

The next Course is being planned for after Easter 2020

This is a combined churches event and all are invited to join either group.

ALPHA is non-denominational.

Coming Events

Messy Church

A whole family fun event with a combination of family, fun activities, faith and dinner.

Exploring the meaning of life is what Alpha is all about. Providing a safe space for discussion around the big questions of life.
This course has been the most successful journey for people with questions, doubts and wonder as to the reality of the Christian story and the faith it brings.

We will be running a community wide course after Easter 2020 – Contact the office for more detail
