Reaching Out

We are passionate about reaching our town with the Good News that the Creator of the universe loves them and says that they’re worth dying for. We are a church on a mission and so everyone plays their part. Here are some of the things we do.

Alpha Course

Alpha is a brilliant introduction to the Christian faith for those wanting to find out more. We run Alpha at least once a year. It’s a 9-week course and there is no obligation or expectation from us at the end of it. When we meet in person, it also includes a subsidised meal!

Beta Course

Beta follows directly on from Alpha, and is a fantastic opportunity to go deeper into some of the reasons why we believe. It’s a great way to learn how to champion your faith confidently to other people, since we look at potential objections to Christianity and how we can respond with gentleness and respect.

Prayer Walking

On the first Monday of every month, we encourage people to go out and prayer walk around their local area, either individually or in pairs. It’s a chance to pray God’s blessing over the surrounding streets, to listen for His voice about people and places - how we can help, what His plan is etc - and also a chance to potentially connect with local people and chat with/pray for them.

Tea & Toast

Currently on hold due to Covid restrictions.

Discipleship Course

The Discipleship Course is for those people who have made a choice to follow Jesus but want to learn how to do that more effectively. It’s ideal for new Christians (especially those who have just completed Alpha) BUT also for those who have walked with Jesus a little longer.

Foundations Course

This 4 week course is for anyone who wants to attend but it is specifically aimed at the following groups of people:
- Those who are new to the faith and want to understand more about the Christian life
- Those who have been Christians for a while but want to revisit the foundations
- Those who are struggling and would value the chance to meet with others to refresh faith
