The first evening is a Introductory Evening when you can come along and see if Alpha is OK for you.
Remember our slogan when you try it: " No cost! No obligation to come to further evenings! No pressure!"
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each evening looks at a different question around faith and life and is designed to create conversation.
It meets weekly for about 11 weeks, and includes a "Holy Spirit Away Day" at a local venue. During recent years scores of people have attended one of St.Andrew's courses, and many have found faith in or renewed a faith in Jesus.
In addition to the normal range of services St. Andrew's is open and manned on many Wednesdays throughout the year for heritage visits, prayer and reflection. The 2019 season is from Wednesday 6th March, and continues through until the end of November.
March, April, October, November - Wednesdays 10:15am - 3:15pm.
May to September - Wednesdays 10:15am - 4:15pm.
The National Heritage Open Days
The next National Heritage Opening Days are in September each year. St. Andrew's takes part with many other places which are open locally, regionally and nationally. Please support these events.
