God still speaks through His Word, the Bible, if we take time to listen. Housegroups give an opportunity to study the Bible, to discuss our faith (or lack of it!) and help each other to grow as disciples.

Anyone who wants to learn is welcome  – no previous knowledge  or church attendance required! There are groups meeting throughout the benefice.  If you are interested in joining a group, please phone the number given or email

An Alpha course is offered every January

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal way.
Each session includes a short film followed by a discussion, where you can share your thoughts, ask questions or just listen.
There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.  What have you got to lose?
