The next Alpha Course begins on 11th. September 

We had a great Alpha Course this past Summer, and now we're into the holiday break. We're planning the Autumn course which will begin on Wednesday 11th, with a "Pizza & Puds evening" and featuring an introduction to the course. If you want to sample an evening before committing yourself to more this is the evening for you. If you'd like to see what its all about it's OK to just turn up on the evening. And of course if you want more information 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.

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. 

After trying it out for a night there's no commitment to any further meetings so why not come and see, though we think you'll enjoy it. If you cannot commit to the whole course at this stage just come along for a few nights and see how you get on! 

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 today. We finish with group discussions in which you can ask questions and share your views.

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.

Alpha is run all around the globe in caf├ęs, churches, universities, homes - you name it and everyone's welcome. Millions have attended and been helped by it - will you be one of them?
