Faith Groups

Bring your friends for a conversation about faith, life and God.

Living in Faith Everyday

We believe that praying, studying and sharing together in small groups forms a real basis for growing in faith.

Our groups meet on Tuesdays each week, currently on Zoom starting at 7:30pm for coffee and fellowship, followed by worship, Bible study and prayer. Please contact us for more details.

Prayer in the Evening

To pray is to make our hearts ready to experience the love of God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Prayer opens us more deeply to the transforming grace of God. We enter into God’s presence, allowing the Holy Spirit to pray in us.

Our prayer group meets on Tuesdays each week, currently on Zoom, from 6:45pm to 7:15pm. Please contact us for more details.

The Alpha Course

Alpha is an 11-week course that creates a space, online or in person, where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life and God.

We run Alpha throughout the year; the next course begins on Wednesday 17th January 2024.
