We all explore, every day.

For all our searching – it’s rare to find time to think, and talk, about the big questions of life; about faith and reason and God and meaning. But exploring is good. We’re built for it. Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.

A series of interactive sessions designed
to create and inspire conversation, with food, a short talk and discussion where you can share thoughts. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. There’s no charge, no pressure and no follow up. Simply time to explore.



The next course starts on Wednesday 16th January with an introductory session at St Nicholas Church at 9.30 am, starting with coffee and cake. There is a free creche for pre-school children – please let us know in advance if you would like a place for your child.

This does not commit you to continuing with the course but is just to give you a taster of what it’s like. The course itself starts the following Wednesday (23rd January) at 9.30 am and then each Wednesday after that.

If you would like to join the course after it has started please do get in touch – it may still be possible!
