Do you have questions about God? Are you still trying to figure all this out? Alpha is the perfect place to ask those questions. Alpha is a safe, friendly environment where we discuss life's questions over a delicious meal.
Each session examines questions like: Who is Jesus? Why did he die? Why do we pray?
There's no pressure, no follow up, and no charge; it's just an open, informal, and honest environment to talk about life and faith.
Come on out and bring a friend!

I'm a Christian, what's next? What are the next steps in our faith? Join us in learning the foundations of what we believe, and why we believe it, at Next Steps!
Next Steps is a great follow up to Alpha, but is open to anyone! It deals with topics that will better shape your life and understanding as a follower of Jesus. Topics like faith, self control, your thought life, and establishing a meaningful prayer life.
You may even enjoy a refresher as someone who has been a Christian for a while but wants a better grip on what you already know. Come check it out!
Many Christians spend their entire lives wrestling with what it means to be in Christ, yet until you get the revelation of who Jesus is, everything you think about who you are is only a guess. To understand who you are in Jesus is to understand that true faith is simply saying "yes" to everything Jesus believes about you.
The Forgotten Way is a journey to rediscovering the radical love found in Jesus that will enable you to see and be differently. And it's called The Forgotten Way because it's a pathway to walk, not a checklist of rules to follow. Included in the study are such topics as: Knowing the Father; Being a Child of the Father; Seeing Who You Are; and Being Love in the Darkness.
The Cleansing Stream Seminar helps all believers to learn how to apply Biblical truths and disciplines in areas of personal healing and freedom, and to grow in their daily walk with God. Life in Jesus is described in scripture as being "brand new", being "moved from darkness to light", "the old passing away - and the new arriving".
It introduces believers in a very practical, step-by-step approach to that brand new way of living. It's about finding freedom in your journey. Wherever you may be at this point in your Christian life, this course can help you live your life in Christ to the full.
Topics include: Knowing the Father, Walking in the Spirit, Speaking Words of Life, and Pressing Towards the Goal.
