Soul Gym

We’re piloting an informal gathering exploring soul health and spirituality called Soul Gym. Meeting on Tuesday nights upstairs at The Little Harp and looking at themes such as ‘what is a soul and when is it healthy?’, ‘the power of gratitude’, and ‘decluttering life’. They’ll also be a retreat day on the topic of ‘mindfulness, contemplation & prayer’. Dates = 30th Jan, 13th & 27th Feb, 3rd,13th & 27th Mar. For more info visit our soul gym page or contact Phil.

 

Alpha

The Alpha Course is run all over the world and is for anyone who wants to explore life’s big questions and get to grips with the landscape of Christian faith. Each of the 6 sessions starts with refreshments, a short talk about the Christian faith, followed by an opportunity to share your thoughts and discuss with others what you think about what’s been said. There’s no pressure, follow up, or charge. We run it with friends from other churches in the town.The next course will start in Easter 2018.

P1200842smBaptism

As a church we’re passionate about believers’ baptism, a practice that signals spiritual birth. We put on a 4 week course regularly to allow people to explore what baptism means, what kind of life the act of baptism kick-starts, and what it means to become an active member of your local church.

Soul Buddies

If you’re up for it, we can link you up with an experienced follower of Jesus who you can meet up with over a coffee and journey with you as you continue to explore the life God is calling you to live.
