Alpha is running here – Wednesdays 6:00 – 8:00pm

Posted on Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Everyone has questions.  We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.  Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.  Alpha is run around the globe and everyone’s welcome.  No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.


If you would like to try Alpha, come to St Peter’s Church, Wednesdays 6:00 – 8:00 pm, starting 10th January 2018 or contact Sarah Martin  –  [email protected]  or  0791 325 9490.
