- a roundup of news from St.Andrew's

Logo: Alpha

The Autumn Alpha Course has begun at 7pm on a Wednesday evening in the Church Hall and will last for some 11 weeks. It's not too late to come along just let us know you'd like to come, or it's OK to just turn up on the evening. And of course if you want more information about what it's all about then we'd be pleased to help you. In the first place e-mail the Parish office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

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.

At St. Andrew's there's all the usual elements to make it a superb course. Beginning with coffee, cakes and snacks at 7:00pm so don't have too much dinner before your come! Then the updated video material which uses the latest presentation techniques to present the Christian faith in a manner relevant to 2018. Finishing with group discussions in which you can ask questions and share your views.

New to St. Andrew's? Not to worry!

You'll find a variety of styles in our worship and plenty of folks to help you get into things. You'll enjoy the friendly atmosphere, lively music, and helpful sermons.
