The Alpha course is a chance to hear the Christian message explained in an easy to understand and relaxed environment. 

It starts with a simple meal, followed by a talk and then discussions groups where you can ask questions and discuss what Christianity means to you.

If you don’t go to church but would like to know more about the teachings of Jesus this is the course for you.

Our next Alpha starts on Monday 14th January at 7:30pm. For further details email
