Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored is an informal 7 week course for people who’d like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics.

Looking at Mark’s Gospel, it explores who Jesus is, why he came and what it means to follow him.

Freedom in Christ

In the autumn of 2014 we covered the Freedom In Christ Course as part of our journeying together in small groups.

The Freedom In Christ Course is a 13 week discipleship course and is open to everyone.


Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in an informal, fun and friendly environment.

All are welcome on an Alpha course; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.

The Alpha Course consists of a series of talks, looking at topics including ‘Who is Jesus?’ and ‘ Why and how do I pray?’.

You don’t have to come to the whole course – just pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure.
